Creating a Tiered Living Miniature Garden With A Pot Stacker ~ Part 2


Last week in Part 1, I put together my pots and pot stacker, filled the pots and found a few miniature plants at Lowes and Home Depot. The next day I made a trip over to Bennett Nurseries here in Huntsville, Alabama, to see if I could find a few more miniature plants. I was pleasantly surprised! They had many varieties of “Stepables” and “Toe Ticklers” ground covers as well as several varieties of Sedum.  I picked out “a few” that I liked the best, and tried to choose a variety of colors and textures.

I bought too much – when I arrived home and started planting, I realized I had enough for my tiered garden and two additional large 12″ pots! Below are pictures of the plants I found – in Part 3 I’ll show how I planted them and added some paths and miniature accessories.  Soon I hope to have some miniature trees from Two Green Thumbs online shop and more miniature accessories.  In Part 4 I will show the end results.  Then we will see if the gardens can withstand the summer thunderstorms in Alabama!

The Dwarf Mondo Grass and the Brass Buttons were both in the “shade” section, but I decided to try them anyway. (My tiered garden is going to live in the sun.)
