Create a magical miniature garden space

Container gardening is the art of growing anything that would grow in a backyard garden in the confined space of a container. Miniature gardens take this to a new level with scale and perspective becoming essential elements. Many garden centers have taken notice of this popular hobby and regularly stock miniature plants and accessories.

A miniature garden can be created around the base of a tree or in any type of container, but something vintage or unusual can add to the charm. All it takes is some imagination and creativity.

Spend some time with your child as scientists observing your garden this spring and summer. Things to notice:
