Loving Lavender in the Miniature Garden


 
Gardening
There’s nothing like stepping into the garden and being welcomed by a light, fresh, sweet scent. From the delightful smell of flowers to the energizing fragrance of freshly-cut grass, gardens engage the senses and evoke memories from the past. Do you have any favorite garden scents? Bright honeysuckle, delicious rosemary, and romantic rose are just a few that warm my heart and spirit. In fact, incorporating fragrant herbs into the miniature garden is easier than you might expect. Rosemary and lavender are two standout choices for any fairy garden or miniature garden.

With its soft, relaxing scent, lavender is a top pick for those who want to de-stress, kick back, and find a moment of Zen in the miniature garden. This flowering plant has been grown for over 2,500 years. The ancient Greeks and Romans used it to scent their baths and clothes. The dried flowers can be used in long-lasting sachets and gorgeous floral arrangements. Chef’s prize the herb, which is in the mint family, for its culinary uses. Lavender adds a sweet, earthy flavor to teas, baked goods, and more.

Of course, herbs are not just useful. They also add beauty and understated elegance to miniature gardens, fairy gardens, and containers. Lavender, with its silver-grey foliage and purple spikes of flowers, is incredibly easy to care for, heat-tolerant, and versatile. This plant loves the sun. It thrives in sunny borders, raised beds, and even indoor containers. Compact and shrub-like, it can be grown right alongside fairy cottages and miniature accessories. In fact, herbs like lavender and rosemary are favorites of the fairies! They love to dry the herbs to add to their tea and cookies. Look no further than the Lavender Flower Fairy to find a fan of lavender. She even wears a matching dress in a pretty shade of light purple.

As you plan and plant your miniature garden, you may want to incorporate some miniature accessories and other details that will complement your new herbs. You could start with a purple garden container, purple porcelain stones, or even a “Welcome to the Garden” sign painted in a light purple hue. Purple preserved reindeer moss can add colorful texture to a container garden. Or you may want to add other purple flowers, such as Pleioslilos nelii Royal Flush or Mazus reptans to the miniature garden. When it comes to purple, it is fun to play with a variety of tones, shapes, and textures. They need not match! Lavender blooms in the summer, so you may want to look for some plants with dark purple foliage that will keep your theme going from season to season.

Not keen on a purple-themed garden? Instead, emphasize the silvery-green tone of lavender’s leaves and stems. Gravel, glitter, and silver accessories can add a touch of sparkle and magic to any miniature garden. A lighted arbor or LED string light sets the stage for elegant after-dark tea parties in the fairy garden.

No matter how you decide to decorate your miniature garden, consider using lavender to add sweet smells and beautiful blooms. In a sunny garden or kitchen window, this herb is sure to thrive, brightening up the fairy garden with its pleasing purple and silvery-green hues.
