When you were little, did you believe in fairies? Seeing your first miniature garden and imagining who (or what) lived there can be a magical experience. Miniature gardens have the flexibility of working indoors or out, and are a perfect way to introduce a love of gardening to kids. What’s more, it’s an excellent opportunity for Moms and Grandmas to spend time with them creating their own little garden!
Start Small with Miniature Gardens
With kids who may be unfamiliar with the joys of tending a garden can bring, miniature gardens let them start small. Let them choose the size of their pot, the landscape, and accessories, and watch their imaginations run wild. Building a miniature garden will foster education, boost creativity and will give them something to be excited about, a welcomed gift during the fast-approaching summer months. Container gardening could offer an exciting new hobby to keep them interested!

A Great Gift for Mom
A miniature garden is a fun way to bring a little whimsy into Mom’s life for Mother’s Day. Have the kids surprise her with a miniature garden that recreates a memory or trip the family took together. Or have them build a a smaller version of a garden that she would love to have one day. Whether it’s an indoor or outdoor garden, she’ll be able to enjoy it for far longer than a simple bouquet would allow.
