Last weekend I had the opportunity to visit Lynn McEntire and learn how to plant a living miniature container garden. After enjoying a poolside luncheon, we got started. See the Tutorial on how to make your own living miniature container garden, including videos!
Lynn has spent many hours working in her delightful in-ground miniature garden. She found that miniature gardening is just like gardening in full size – it is hard work, but rewarding! Lynn has found much of her inspiration and many of her plants and accessories at the Two Green Thumbs online shop.
The video above gives a short tour of the garden – it was made in the full sun and is a little shaky, but hopefully it will give you some ideas for your own garden! (I’ll work on my video-taking skills!) She grew many of her own miniature plants in a small greenhouse on her deck.
Almost any container will do for a miniature garden – even a tea cup!
