What gardening trend is hotter than vertical gardens, succulents, and edible landscapes? Miniature gardens!
The great thing about miniature gardening is ultimately the combination of crafting and gardening, to create your very own fantasy landscape. Perhaps a little English cottage in a meadow, or a shady bench on the bank of a stream, or even a fairy treehouse? But we can’t all afford to spend weeks or months (let alone your pension fund) to create it on in full scale, so why not allow your inspiration to be satisfied by creating the exact landscape in miniature? You could even make a few for variety.
The magic of miniatures plays an incredible trick on the brain. By keeping everything in your garden to a proportionate scale (especially recognisable features such as furniture, structures or paving), you begin to disregard the miniature elements and instead see the scene as a whole. Suddenly, you can imagine yourself right there…
Whether you want to build a miniature empire in your garden bed or design a private garden with a pebble patio for an indoor centrepiece, miniature gardening allows you to create your own tiny, living world.
