1. Thinking about committing to a professional lawn care service
October 15, 2021


Everyone likes the look of a green lush lawn in front of and at the back of their home. A great lawn is not just welcoming and attractive it also makes the property more valuable. That is why lawn care, Winchester and beyond is important. A healthy lawn does not happen without help, whether that is you doing the hard work or you hire a service to handle it. Most people want a lawn that is pest-free, weed-free and easy to mow and look after. But it takes energy, time and knowledge to do it well. Not everyone has that so a lawn care company is the answer. Comparing lawn care businesses Not all... (read more)

2. American Skunk Cabbage—how to Remove It
September 28, 2021


This plant is native to Western North American, but it was introduced to the UK to be used as an ornamental bog plant.  Once this plant has established itself, it is very invasive and will form dense colonies.  It does require wet conditions to survive but there are no particular soil requirements.  It gets its name from the strong fragrance of the flowers that resemble the smell that is produced by a skunk. Identifying American skunk cabbage This plant has large leathery leaves that measure between 40cm-1.5m with bright yellow flowers up to 45cm.  Around April is when th... (read more)

3. How To Improve Your Mood By Changing Your Surroundings
September 22, 2021


It is said that we are made of everything that surrounds us, and I believe these words to hold utmost importance and truth. Everything that is around you affects you in every possible way, physically, emotionally and spiritually. The same thing is explained in Chinese culture; the concept of Feng Shui explains that everything and everyone has their own energy and affects you in different ways, some things have great negative energy that reduces the positivity and happiness around you and takes your mental peace away. In the same way, the things and people who have more good power affect you in... (read more)

4. Gifting Peperomias
September 06, 2021


Do you have children in your life, or perhaps adults who would not mind feeling like kids again? Chances are, these loved ones are embarking on something new and important. After all, now is the time for back-to-school, back-to-the-office… and it is certainly back-to-neighborliness. Now might be the time to mark one of these milestones with an exquisite little gift that brings a smile. Exquisite… little… smile-eliciting: Peperomias are all these things. These miniature plants with leaf shapes and colors that spread joy have become the recent focus of my gift-giving. And on the receiving e... (read more)

5. Mirrored Garden Displays
September 06, 2021


Contrasts add excitement. I love seeing large plants in juxtaposition with small ones. Contrasting sizes, mixed together, invite the eye to inspect. But lately I have been playfully mirroring my large-scale gardens with miniature garden displays using the same plants, in reduced form. In one garden bed, I have a border of large Elegans Hostas. Here, I have let them expand to the point of becoming supersized. Each Hosta has plumped to fill its allotted space—or, if truth be told, has overstepped its bounds. This works, but it takes up space. In filling a nearby area of much less space... (read more)

6. "New School" Small Hydrangeas
August 30, 2021


Something seems amiss when talking about Hydrangeas and miniature plants in the same breath. But today these topics go together well. The world of the Hydrangea has opened to all who adore miniature plants. Varieties are now small enough for gardeners to enjoy in containers, borders, and small beds. Our great-grandparents knew different Hydrangeas. They were beautiful, but some had blooms prone to drooping, and most required lots of space. Fast-forward to our gardens of today: What would Great-Gram and Gramp make of the Hydrangeas thriving as miniature plants in patio containers... (read more)

7. Growing Oxalis
August 30, 2021


Green Thumbs often take pride in growing plants that need pampering. I once spent time nurturing orchids. When friends marveled at those temperamental orchids, my hat size expanded. But easy-to-grow plants are just as rewarding as those that put up a fight. They make miniature gardening a pleasure. Oxalis is easy to grow, especially when treated as a houseplant. With minimal care, it rewards the gardener with pleasing foliage color, an interesting form that changes based on light, and flowers. A wood sorrel that grows from tiny bulbs, Oxalis sends up clover-like, heart shaped or tri... (read more)

8. Rock Gardening with Miniature Plants
August 09, 2021


Nature loves to fill any void. We see her grass in sidewalk cracks and her wildflowers in the crevices in rock faces. In time, Nature fills in. But we may not want to wait for Nature to adorn stone walls and stepping stones on our property. If we yearn to green up an area or get a certain specimen to take hold, we must help things along. For rock gardening, ideal adornments are miniature plants—typically ones that like to keep their feet dry. I am fortunate to have garden beds raised by stone walls. These walls have become home to a host of miniature plants. This started with… well... (read more)

9. Getting Started in Miniature Gardening with Proven Winners
August 09, 2021


How do you choose plant stock for your miniature garden? I typically am not drawn to labels and logos. But when I spy the white containers and leaf logo of Proven Winners®, consistency and high quality come to mind. This is not to say these are the only plants I purchase. But they are some of my favorites when I need miniature garden additions that cannot disappoint. And they are ideal for those just starting out with miniature gardening. Newer gardeners thrive on early successes. Having gone through trials to ensure disease resistance and performance, these become little workhorses in the gar... (read more)

10. Window Dressing
August 03, 2021


Everyone can have a garden. Plants are as happy to be nurtured by urban dwellers in tight quarters as they are to be tended by those possessing acres. And miniature plants, with their ability to bring riches to bear on a small space… well, they turn house into home. I will not forget trips to Europe where almost every balcony bore the marks of a gardener. Form, texture, color, scent—all punctuated the architecture. Hardscapes were softened by foliage from window boxes, and green thumbs seemed to have anointed every structure in sight. Some of my favorite green-thumb “moves” back home... (read more)

July 22, 2021


It is a vital part of owning a garden to take good care of your lawn, they add a softness to the garden and can be very nice to look at. Lawn care services are important as your lawn can easily take a lot of damage through everyday life. When looking for lawn services Hampshire has to offer, it is important that you find the best lawn care Hampshire has to offer as a lot of companies do not properly understand the importance of good lawn care.

12. Designing a Magical Place
July 14, 2021


In the gardening world, bigger is often thought to be better—blousy peonies, so heavy they bend under their own weight… Casa Blanca lilies on stems that rise to the height of children.... These are what make many gardeners’ eyes light up. But enter the world of the fairy garden—a display of dainty specimens often made smaller through trimming and division to mimic the trees, shrubs, and plantings of the larger world on a magically reduced scale—and you will be charmed on a new level. Bend low, peer down a pathway of small Boxwoods trimmed Bonsai-style to create a hedgerow, pass by a self-... (read more)

13. Garden Time is Family Time
July 05, 2021


Shh. Do you hear that? It is the sweet sound of silence! I love a quiet morning in my miniature garden, with hours spent weeding, watering, and admiring my miniature plants. I never feel completely alone, because I have all of my fairy friends with me, but it is nice to take a break from the hustle and bustle of the social summertime. Do you crave alone time in the miniature garden? I usually do, but this year, I have been searching for some ways to involve my family members in my fairy gardening hobby. After months spent apart, we are finally able to spend time together again. A couple o... (read more)

14. Growing a Collection of Miniature Plants
July 01, 2021


Do you have a favorite miniature plant? It is a hard question, I know. It is especially difficult to choose a favorite miniature plant if you, like me, have a large (and ever-growing) collection of fairy garden plants. Is it the Bonsai tree that arches over the neighborhood of fairy houses? Is it the colorful cactus, the delicate flowers, or maybe even the groundcover plant you never thought would flourish? This year, I have been thinking about what it means to have a “favorite” miniature plant, especially after reading Tiny Plants by Leslie F. Halleck, an exploration of miniature gardeni...

15. Why Grow Miniature Plants?
June 28, 2021


Over the years, my house, porch, and garden have been happy homes for all sorts of plants, flowers, shrubs, and trees. These have ranged from the tropical to the evergreen, and everything in between. At times, my family members and friends have asked me, “Why do you grow fairy garden plants-- specifically?” They wonder why I do not just stick with “life-size” plants, especially because miniature plants and trees are so unique, with their own needs. And I talk about them all the time, so they seem to require plenty of care-right? In truth, miniature plants are easy to care for, decidedly c... (read more)

16. Consider Cacti for the Fairy Garden
June 26, 2021


Each and every miniature garden has its own personality. Some are filled with miniature trees that mimic the big branches and green leaves of life-size parks and gardens. Others assemble mini succulents or colorful flowers. This summer, I have been experimenting with a unique miniature plant that used to make me nervous: the cactus! Cacti, even on a miniature scale, can be intimidating with their strange shapes and spiky spines. But, when properly planted and cared for, they actually make some of the most beautiful and creative miniature gardens. Keep reading to find out how to plant a cactus ... (read more)

The sun is shining and the plants are in full bloom. Summer is finally here!

After a difficult year, it feels like the whole world is waking up and bursting with life. What do you have planned for your miniature garden this year?

18. Grow a Fairy Garden in a Planter Box
May 31, 2021


Fairy gardens come in all shapes and sizes. Teeny-tiny plant pots, hanging baskets full of cascading miniature plants, and even huge, wild gardens tucked away in woodsy areas. Whether you are planning out your very first foray into miniature gardening, or if you have been living amongst the fairies for some time now, there are always decisions to make. How big will your garden be? Where will it grow? Who will see it? This year, I have been experimenting with miniature gardens in reclaimed wood planter boxes, and I think I have fallen in love! Small containers and flower beds still have my hear... (read more)

19. Shh...The Fairies are Sleeping!
May 23, 2021


The air smells crisp and clean. Outside, everything is quiet. Shadows play jokes on you against the miniature plants and trees, filling your imagination with stories of trolls and tigers. And summer’s warmth hangs in the air, long after the sun has gone down. Have you ever ventured into the miniature garden after dark? At nighttime, fireflies dance between the leaves—or are those fairy lights? Insects sing sweet midnight songs—or are those the voices of pixies? Take a walk through the fairy garden at night, and you are bound to discover secrets beyond your wildest dreams. First up on our ... (read more)

20. Grow a Fairy Garden in a Basket
May 23, 2021


Spring has officially “sprung”! The flowers are opening up their smiling faces to the sky. The trees are filling out with green leaves. And the last of the snow has finally melted away. As the temperatures climb and the outdoors become livelier, I will be spending more time on my miniature gardens. After months of staying inside, I must have also caught the “social bug,” because I have been dreaming up ways to give fairy gardens as gifts to friends and family members I have not seen in months. When I was a child, we used to participate in an old May Day tradition of leaving flowers on our... (read more)

21. A Trip to the Tiny Seaside
May 03, 2021


It is officially that time of year again. The sunshine is starting to warm the air, the flowers and miniature plants are thriving, and memories of frozen days are being left behind. As the weeks go on and spring gathers momentum, I begin to get the “itch” for a trip to the seaside. Does this happen to you? Every spring, like clockwork, I start to crave the warm sand on my toes, the taste of salt on my tongue, and even the sounds of surfer rock drifting out of boardwalk shops. I am overdue for some time by the water! It may not be time to pack up the car and head to the coast quite yet, bu... (read more)

22. Uh-Oh: Mischief in the Miniature Garden!
May 03, 2021


It is an age-old adage, but it is true. Laughter is good for the soul. These days, I am keeping my eyes wide open for jokes, tricks, moments of whimsy, and split seconds of silliness. Laughter keeps me going when the days are tough and the skies are grey. If your heart has been hurting this year, perhaps you could use a good chuckle. April Fool’s Day may have passed, but there are always opportunities for a little mischief in the miniature garden. Making Messes Peer through the miniature plants’ green leaves and duck under the branches of the miniature trees. Through the meadow and ... (read more)

23. Essential Supplies for the Fairy Garden
May 03, 2021


Quick! Spring break is over, the little ones are busy with school, the holidays have wrapped up, and summer fun has not gotten underway quite yet. Do you know what that means? There is finally some time to work on the projects we have all been putting off. From home projects to hobbies, everyone has a few things that have fallen to the bottom of the list. But at last, this in-between season offers a bit of quiet time to clean, organize, DIY, and yes—garden! This spring, I am excited to get my hands dirty while putting together some new container-based miniature gardens. If you have always... (read more)

24. 4 Ideas for a Memory Garden
April 19, 2021


My miniature garden is my happy place. Whether I am watering and weeding, adding new miniature plants, or giving one of my friends a tour of the fairyhood, I always have a smile on my face. Over the years, though, I have found that the miniature garden can also be the perfect place for quiet reflection, contemplation, and even, from time to time, a good cry! Yes, I have been known to shed a tear or two while working or relaxing in the garden. There is something about the mix of sights, sounds, and smells that jogs the memory and awakens emotions.

25. Take a Break in the Zen Garden
March 29, 2021


Life speeds up in the springtime. After the long, slow days of winter and weeks spent wishing for sunshine, spring finally arrives, full of new sights, sounds, and smells. The first buds on the trees and flowers on the miniature plants prove that nature is waking up, giving a good stretch, and warming itself up for the months ahead. Sometimes it seems as though, once the daffodils appear, the plants begin a beeline to summer—and everyone else does, too! Before you know it, the school year has wrapped up, baseball is back, and the hottest days of the year have arrived. Do you ever wish you... (read more)
