…miniature garden plants are combined with in-scale accessories and patios to make real, living mini garden scenes that can grow and weave itself together for years in a container or in-ground with minimal care. When planted correctly, the plants and trees stay in scale with each other to create a sustainable, true garden in miniature.
Not to be confused with fairy gardens, which are little worlds created around fairies and their abodes. This hobby is more mystical than miniature gardening (although just as fun) and certainly there is a place where the two overlap.
