Frustrated by articles on miniature and fairy gardening that say the same thing over and over – or nothing at all? Tired of seeing the same projects all the time? What about articles with no pictures to show what they are talking about? Links to nowhere? Yep, we’re getting frustrated too.
With so much going on with the Internet these days, we are finding websites, growers and sellers that are recommending difficult plants to grow, plants that grow way too fast, accessories that will disintegrate and/or fade within a month and planting methods that will end up a big old mess quite quickly. If you are familiar with our work over the last 15 years, you know that we care about you first, then the miniature garden. We don’t set you up for just for a sale, we want you to be successful because that’s where the joy of miniature gardening is.
Tired of Buying the Wrong Plants?
We’re seeing a TON of different websites offer plants for miniature gardening that we know simply will not work out well for you. Unfortunately most businesses are just into selling you a plant and don’t care what happens after it leaves the store. We're different.
We’ve bought and tested hundreds of suggested plants throughout the past 15 years. We’ve even had experienced growers recommend plants that were so wrong for our miniature gardens it has become a personal mission of ours to find plants that won't set you up for failure.
We will assist you in finding the right plants for your purpose and your region with an accumulated database we’ve been working on for over a decade. It’s a database built by miniature gardeners for miniature gardeners, we know what details to include so you can have a much better start to your miniature gardening.
Discouraged by Garden Miniatures that Don't Last?
We are like you and care about the environment. And we’re thrifty, just like you, and we don't care to see things that go to waste quickly, without getting much enjoyment from them. We've been testing ways to help get the most out of what we have. We plan on helping you reduce, renew and recycle what you’ve already bought to save you money and save the items from being tossed into the landfill. There are fun and clever ways to get more out of what you already have and we can't wait to show you!
