My miniature garden adventure…

I love gardens! Every kind in fact. I am all for growing plants that are pretty but still be edible.  My patio garden has a great variety of plants, most of them are in containers. I decided to try something a little different. Mini gardens. Perfect for small spaces like I have.

A friend of mine inspired me to try a mini garden. You can find him on Facebook, here.

He is a pro! Mine can’t even come close but I had a lot of fun in making them.

Here are a few I made, look below for a mini tour. Everything is very small, from the tiniest plants I could find and even some furniture I made of rocks, sticks and Popsicle sticks. The tiny signs and other things I bought at a local arts and crafts store.

The biggest one is in a fire pit thing I had laying around. I bought the gazebo and fence.

I think the pansies were too big, but I used them anyway.. I put a quarter on the flagstone for size reference.

I ended up by putting tiny gravel down to cover the soil. It set the flagstones in, and made it look better.. I didn’t get a picture of that. I did this about two weeks after I had finished for an added touch.

In the one below you can see where I made a picnic bench.

Furniture made of tiny pebbles and shells. This one was made to sit in a mini garden. It has a waterfall a table with cocktails.

Table for two??!!

A tiny cast iron bench I bought. I noticed the tag after the photo. lol must pull that off.

I sprayed this pot with that textured spray paint. Makes it look like a rock wall, but its just a cheap plastic container that was just sitting empty in the yard.

Below is a recliner or bench lounge with some tables..

They were so fun to make. A great rainy day project..

Below is a 2″ by 2″ rock house. You can see my glasses for size reference.

The rock house has a planted garden on the roof.

Below I made a tiny pergola and table.

Tiny views..

In a hanging basket..

The fence..

And another park bench.

All in all this was super fun to do. You should try one!

  1. That is so beautiful and inspiring! My fingers are aching to do something, and I love everything you did in that fire pit…What an idea! Now, I have to keep my eyes out on trash day and maybe I can snatch one.
