The Original Miniature Garden

The miniature garden photograph that started it all in 2000. This scene is 10 1/2" wide and fooled one of the top horticulturalists at the nursery I was working at, at that time. When she thought it was a full-sized garden, I knew I had something.


Our Commitment to You,
the Hobby, and to the Environment

At Two Green Thumbs Miniature Garden Center, we are committed to spreading the joy of the Gardening in Miniature hobby, by providing you with sustainable and authentic garden miniatures that can withstand watering in the living garden, age gracefully and are sturdy enough to be reused or repurposed to keep them from being landfill.

Our true miniature garden trees, shrubs and plants are grown, tried and tested by us, before we offer them to you, our customer. Your success is our success!
Two Green Thumbs is online only at this time. We ship plants safely all year round from our home-base in Seattle, Washington and have been since 2004.
Please join our Mini Garden Gazette to keep up to date on any new plants or miniature garden items and any special sales and events. Fill out the form on the front page of this website, or click the "Mini Garden Gazette" in the menu, on the left!
