Hooray! It is finally the first day of spring, the robins have come back and it looks like there are not many days of snow left. Those of us who are avid gardeners and have been poring over catalogs all winter will relish this wonderful garden variation--miniature gardening! Sometimes called "fairy gardens," creating a tiny garden is rather like playing with a dollhouse.

Stop in the shop and see the many creative ways you can combine the cottages, trellises, mini pots and urns.  Perfect for indoor or outdoor use, the possibilities are endless.

There are classic miniature border planters that can be arranged in any combination and the planters are watertight.  Artificial greens have been used in the store and you can substitute real greenery and floral material in your creations.

Wheelbarrows, watering cans, semi-circular benches, stepping stones and birdhouses...

Mini lanterns, tables and chairs, gates and arbors....

French garden gates embellished with tiny tools.....

Scrolled garden hook with mini wire accessories..

A perfect hobby with your children or grandchildren!

As your creations begin to take shape, we invite you to share pictures with us...more details to follow!
Stay tuned!!

Happy planting!!!
