How to Build a Fairy Garden

Since Spring has decided to show up a little late this year and a lot of the ground is still covered in snow, we haven't had much of a chance to get out into the garden to get ready for the upcoming seasons.  So what do you do when you are itching to garden but the weather isn't cooperating?  Garden indoors!  We love creating terrariums and fairy gardens.  Our company stores in South Windsor, CT and York, ME have everything you need to build your own Fairy Garden at home.  Stop by and check out the gardens created by our in house team and then build your own at home following these 5 simple steps.




How to Assemble a Fairy Garden or Terrarium
1.  Place a layer of small stones at the bottom of your chosen vessel.
2. Add a layer of activated charcoal.
3.  Add a layer of Sphagnum moss to help with drainage.
4.  Add the potting soil and plants.  Choose small plants, ivy and different mosses that do not grow too fast. 
5.  Give your terrarium plants indirect sunlight and mist with water as needed.
