If you read our first post on Fabulous Fairy Gardening Part I and Part II you know how to put together a fairy garden and the wonderful selection of items we have in the garden center. Now I’ll share with you how some gardeners have put their skills to work in creating some really inspirational fairy gardens.
I love this rustic fairy garden from Midwest Living. The garden is planted in an old drawer which really gives it a special charm. I especially love the use of the vines on the arbor and the rusty garden benches and birdhouse. The garden contains a mini variegated boxwood shrub, thyme, ajuga and juniper.
You may want to consider creating a themed fairy garden. I think the beach themed fairy garden by the Miniature Garden Shoppe below is absolutely adorable. Just remember anything goes for themes. Rain Forest, Desert, formal gardens, hardscaping, and more!
Below is another fabulous fairy garden featured on the Christian Science Monitor. I really like this one because it is in a metal tub which really adds unique character. I also like the mix of stone, plants, and moss to create a miniature landscape. The use of some bright colored “fairy” accents really makes it fun!
This garden by Miniature Garden Shoppe is fun because it really shows how to put all the fairy furniture and accessories to good use. I really like the miniature tools and arbor in this particular garden.
Check out this Fairy Garden by Two Green Thumbs. Its a nice example of more formal fairy garden, complete with masonry patio and park bench. I think the use of dwarf sized conifers works very well in this garden. (We also carry a nice selection of the dwarf conifers in the garden center in case you want to add a few to you own fairy garden).
