A fair(l)y new trend in container gardening, it is all about creating realistic landscapes — complete with cute little houses, cobblestone paths, fences and forests — in terracotta pots, wicker baskets, wide plastic bowls, wooden boxes, tubs et al.

Usually, these miniature gardens are created in such a way that they are visible from all sides. And it's completely up to you to create the ambience using small fences, tiny chairs or benches, random toys and whatever you fancy. Once your landscaping is done, create a small snaking path through your forest using coloured pebbles. Done? Now, let the fairies drop in!


What's more, a fairy garden is the perfect way to initiate your kids into learning more about plants during their summer vacations! So, let your imagination run riot!

Get, set, go...
- Put potting mix in the container.
- You can experiment with various interesting arrangements by placing all the items for decoration
- toy furniture, rocks, ornamental mushrooms, pebbles, twigs, seashells etc
- here and there on the soil. Make sure they don't tumble out.
- Once the layout is set, plant the largest root first. Small creepers are good for the borders.
- Trim regularly to keep them growing low and lush.
- You can use succulents that don't require a lot of care.
- Water, as required, just to keep the soil moist.


DIY: Broken-pot landscape

- Even a broken pot can look beautiful with some amount of imagination. It can be created either from the pieces left from an accidental break or from a carefully planned cut. To cut such a pot, soak it and use a craft drill or file to create a shape that can then be broken out with a hammer very carefully.
- Fill the container with potting mixture and arrange the shards in the soil.
- Broken pots with an assortment of succulents will make this garden a sight to behold.
