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. Our aim is a true garden in miniature that means realism is key - because that is where the real enchantment is. 

Our miniatures are carefully chosen and most can withstand the water and dampness when in the living garden. They age gracefully and are sturdy enough to be reused, repainted or repurposed to keep them out of the landfill and in your mini garden. 

We enjoy the fairy garden too. We just don't like the crude and cheap accessories that came along with the trend that looked terrible and faded fast in the garden. We see fairy gardening as a hobby, despite the gift and garden industry dismissing it because it's not trendy anymore. We're still here for all fairy gardeners and we help to keep the garden-part of your fairy garden happy and thriving. 

Our true miniature garden trees, shrubs and plants are grown, tried and tested by us, before we offer them to you, our customer. We want you to be successful in your gardening because your success is our success!

Two Green Thumbs is online only at this time. We hope to one day have a brick and mortar "Miniature Garden Center" where you can come visit and play with us! 
We ship plants safely all year round from our home-base in Seattle, Washington and have been since 2004. Our shipping methods are truly like no one else!

Janit Calvo Expert Miniature Gardener


About World-Renown Expert,
Author & Obsessed About
All Things Miniature Garden,
Janit Calvo

I’m the world-renown expert on Gardening in Miniature, inventor of the Mini Patio Mix Kit. Owner of America's favorite miniature garden center store: Two Green Thumbs Miniature Garden Center. I’m the author of the Bestselling Gardening in Miniature Books: Gardening in Miniature: Create Your Own Tiny Living World and Gardening in Miniature Prop Shop: Handmade Accessories for Your Tiny Living World, and I’m president & founder of the Miniature Garden Society. 

I know, that's a lot. But I've been building this hobby since 2001. So, I've had a little bit of time to get all this together - and I'm still growing the hobby and there is still much more growing to do. I've been collecting all the insights, experience, directories, how-to's and more, up in our Miniature Garden Society.

But what I really do is I help fellow miniature gardeners refine their gardening in miniature skills and connect them to their own ideas, experience and resources to minimize their learning curve and maximize their creativity - and it saves them time and money too!

Are you head over heels in love with this hobby too? Join us! There isn't any other person as crazy about this hobby that does the real research, and is able to explain it in plain english, so others can learn too. Really!
