Living Miniature Gardens By Lynn McEntire

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.

    I have been wanting to do one of these miniature gardens for a while now and after this horrible heat we had this summer, I’m thinking that’s the way to go!

    These are adorable! I’d love to have one of my own but I’m afraid it wouldn’t do well inside and I live in an urban area.
