We've Got the Dirt on Miniature Gardening
Taking her love of gardening to another small, but significant level, Elizabeth Millen, our publisher, recently experienced a fun afternoon learning all about miniature gardening from ACE Garden’s “miniature and all things gardening” expert Freda Tawney. Elizabeth learned how to create her own miniature garden, and it has brought her great joy.
Stoking whimsical creativeness, miniature gardening is has gained great popularity at ACE Garden on St. Simons Island, where they have dedicated almost two aisles to this art form. We found a plethora of mini-garden creatures, characters (think tiny yard art) adorable cast trees and shrubs, reflecting balls, castles, huts, fairies of all sizes, as well as all shapes and sizes of containers, vessels, bowls, drawers, hanging containers, light and heavy pots. Add potting soil, rocks, gravel, sand and moss in a variety of colors, shapes and sizes and it’s a garden; each with a story to tell.
