Miniature Container Gardens

Hi all,

I made these miniature gardens about three weeks ago. These photos show you how the little gardens currently look. I used several ground covers: Scotch moss, creeping thyme, Blue Star, and rosemary for the "trees", and other small plants I found at the nursery shop. The containers are twelve inches wide and sufficiently deep for the project. When I planted them, there were not flowering yet...however, you can see the sweet tiny, tiny flowers blooming all over in the second photo.

About two weeks ago...

A little rabbit enjoys the greens...

A pair of gnomes in this one; although you can only see one in the pic...I do need to re-paint them, the sun from last Summer fade them out...poor guys!

Can you see the ducks making their way across the bridge?

I hope you like them and inspire you to try making one or two mini gardens. They are fun and easy to make.

Have a great day!
