Yesterday I couldn’t help but notice all the miniature gardens when my buddy El Presidente were at the Northwest Flower and Garden Show. Talk about total eye candy for a gardener on a cold winters day.
Check out this 12th man miniature garden. It’s like a picture from an I Spy book.
The plants used in the miniature gardens varied from succulents, to bonsai trees, to all different kinds of moss.
This Australian astroturf was VERY popular.
If you live in the Pacific Northwest you can pretty much find something similar in your backyard or while out on a nature walk. Otherwise the Home Depot and local nurseries sell it the stuff for around $3 – $4 for a 3×3 pot.
I am in love.
After seeing all the miniature gardens on display, I think I totally need to make one. In fact later today I’m going to collect some moss from the backyard and make one. Stay tuned!
