Because Micro-Mini gardens lend themselves to indoor miniature gardens, they're perfect for those members of society who may not have easy access to outdoor gardens- those living in tower blocks, the elderly, and anyone with a communal space. However, if you're an experienced fairy garden maker and you're looking for a new challenge, this might be right up your street! Micro-Minis are a great way to combine natural materials and plants with imaginative, whimsical products to create something very small yet perfectly formed.

Here's a sneak preview of our latest miniature fairy garden products!

Fairy Gardens, or Miniature Gardens, are miniature worlds created using real plants and either natural or man made objects. Fairy gardens are of course themed around fairies and other mystical creatures, so often there are miniature houses, figurines and accessories used. Miniature gardens rely more on natural products, such as rock, bark, cork, etc, to create a landscape that resembles real life but much, much smaller!

Fairy gardening is a perfect pastime for lots of people- it's not just for children! While of course it's great for encouraging the imagination of a young person, sometimes adults can do with having their imaginations encouraged too... Because many fairy and miniature gardens are in containers, they don't have to be outside, or require much maintenance. This means they're perfect for someone with limited mobility to enjoy indoors, or if you live in a flat with no access to a garden, you can bring nature inside.

Miniature and fairy gardens tend to work best with plants that like shallow soil, or no soil at all. Alpines, Succulents and Tillandsia (air plants) are all commonly used, with small conifers being added for outdoor gardens. A full recommended plant list is available- please contact us if you'd like a copy.

The Fiddlehead Fairy Garden range is designed in the USA and is intended to be used both outdoors and inside. Products are all frost proof, but they will fade a little in direct sunlight. Mostly this is fine, as the fading makes them look older and more lifelike, but you may find the brighter colours fade more, so we recommend these are placed in shady areas. The only other maintenance needed is a little oil occasionally on the door hinges to prevent them rusting.

We've built fairy garden displays at Chelsea Flower Show, Hampton Court Flower Show, the GLEE garden trade show and many more. As the distributor for Fiddlehead Fairy Gardens we're experienced in all aspects of fairy and miniature gardening, so if you have any questions, please call or email.

We've created miniature fairy gardens for many large shows and displays over the years. We're proud to have been part of a Silver medal winning garden at RHS Chelsea Flower Show in 2017 where we planted a shed roof with a full fairy garden using Fiddlehead products. We're regularly asked which plants are most suitable for fairy gardens, so we've put together a list.

A quick note: plants from supermarkets are often not well cared for and have been forced (grown too fast). This means that they're not as healthy as plants from a nursery or plant specialist, so we recommend you purchase your plants from your local, independent specialist who will usually have grown them from seed.
