We got an amazing deal on some big, colorful metal trugs (because they leaked, but we drill holes in them anyway!), and we are passing along the savings to you! You will get soil and TONS of miniature plants like creeping thyme, sedum, Irish and Scotch moss to landscape your garden, as well as colored pebbles for pathways. Then you can purchase any extra accessories from our EXPANDED Fairy Garden accessories nook. Wait 'til you you see what treasures we found! (To simplify check-out, please, no outside accessories.) Plus, creating a fairy garden is a wonderful way of introducing children to gardening. This is an adult class, but feel free to bring a child and share some quality time: Show him or her how fun it can be! That's why we scheduled this class during school vacation week. When children succeed at gardening, you give them the tools for a lifetime of joy.
Several years ago, I made this pot up as part of our vegetable garden display. It was just meant to add a little fun and whimsy to the nursery, and to show people what you could do at home with a little creativity. But people kept trying to buy it, and I only had one, so I had to keep saying "I'm sorry. It is only for display." Before I could take a "perfect" picture, a new cashier accidentally sold it, but luckily I had snapped this photo with my phone. I'm not sure if you can see the detail, but you can choose from several colors of bowls, and matching salad tongs. One mature, you will be picking lettuce for sandwiches and salads almost daily. Make two and you can feed your family pesticide-free food for months.
