Clever terrarium gardens

It’s all about terrarium gardening for me this year! I’m so fascinated by anything miniature. Anyone remember “Land of the Giants” when you were a kid?

Terrarium gardening has never been cooler. From cake stands to martini glasses … there is no end to the creative ideas for re-purposing containers to showcase nature in miniature form.

What are you most excited to create this spring?

    These are SO creative and fun! I’m going to go all creative with my desk area this spring, one of these would be a great addition.

    I love these! A friend of mine is doing these bottle plants. The plant comes out the top, different growing mediums are layered, and she claims they only need watering once a month. They look great, kinda like the sand layer idea. Of course finding the unique bottle or jar and pairing it up with the plant all adds to the fun!

    I am wondering (meanwhile I know the trick of the ship or the pear in the bottle) how little things get into small ones like the plants you showed in this post. Cute! By the way, how are you getting on with your tiny rosemary cuttings, you once made a post of? Are they still ok?
    Thank you for visiting my wintery garden 😉 ! Today it’s the first day without frozen temperatures!
    Wishing you a good time

      Barbara, how funny you mention my little rosemary cuttings as I was just thinking of them in regards to my earlier post and your comments about them at that time… Only 1 of 3 has made it and it is doing well. I was overly optimistic in the fall about them being ready for Christmas. (We gardeners do tend to be optimistic}.
      Thanks for visiting and I’m glad warmer days are upon you too!
      OH, please tell us the trick of getting the plants and objects into tiny bulbs and such…
      until then.
