Garden in Miniature
Miniature gardens are best described as small-scale versions of full size gardens. Plants are in scale with each other.
A themed miniature garden, fairy gardens are whimsical and bring out your inner child. With them, there are no rules as to style, scale or composition. Create your own little world complete with adorable and colorful accessories (houses, arbors, trellises and more!). Homestead Gardens’ fairy garden department offers a wide selection of accessories, from year-round favorites to seasonal decor.
A terrarium garden is a garden planted in a container enclosed in clear glass or plastic, which supports plants in a more or less self-contained environment requiring minimal maintenance. Once planted, the water present in the container is constantly recycled through natural evaporation and condensation cycles. Very little additional watering is necessary and the plants should thrive on a daily basis with adequate sunlight.
Terrarium gardens have been popular for many years and there is a wide variety of types and styles of terrariums from which to choose. The simplest terrarium can be made from goldfish bowls, large bottles with a large opening, or any other container that encloses the plants (either partially or entirely) and allows sunlight to enter through a clear, colorless material.
A completely enclosed terrarium that traps and holds most of the moisture is ideal for plants that require high humidity. On the other hand, a terrarium that has an opening at the top for ventilation of excess moisture would be recommended for plants requiring a dry climate – like succulents and cactus.
Homestead Gardens has a wide selection of terrarium glass and other materials required to build your own terrarium garden!
