When it comes to fairy gardening, it all depends on where your imagination takes you.
How to build a fairy garden
1. CHOOSE A CONTAINER
It can be big, small, glass, terra cotta, or even an old dog dish. Whatever catches your eye will work fine. Containers with drainage are best when using living plants.
2. LAYERING YOUR MATERIALS
Add rocks, pebbles, or shells to create extra drainage. This is extremely important if your container does not have drainage holes. Next comes the potting soil. A high-quality soil will keep your tiny plants looking fresh and green. You can also add a layer of sheet moss and/or pebbles, depending on where your imagination leads you.
3. CHOOSE YOUR PLANTS
This is where the fun begins and your Fairy Garden starts to take shape. It is best to choose plants with similar sun and water requirements. Keep in mind that the plants will grow, so don't overcrowd them!
Now add your fairies. Beier's Greenhouse offers a wide selection of Fairy Garden accessories, including benches, bikes, gazebos, pathways, and of course, many many fairies!
Don't forget to water when needed. Keep an eye on the moisture level, since everything is tiny it will drink at a different pace than larger gardens and containers. Give your fairy garden some tender loving care and it may just grow into a fairy jungle!
