Terrariums in All Shapes and Sizes


Terrariums are not new... but finding new vessels to plant them in never gets old! Barb Rosen asked the members in our Garden Charmers Group, check us out here: ( https://www.facebook.com/thegardencharmers ) to share some posts on terrariums we had done.
I realized that I have done a ton of terrariums, for both work and home but have not actually written up a blog post. SO... I will share them here.

    These look great! I find the lightbulb one particularly charming.

    Love this! I remember my mom having a huge one in the 70's. I was fascinated that it didn't need watered as often like the other plants. I have a question. Can this be done with herbs like Rosemary, sage and Thyme? I'm also going to make a small one for my nieces desk at her new "Big Girl" job she started after graduating college.

      @Theresa Thornsberry You might be able to grow thyme in an open terrarium that was kept on the dry side, but I think rosemary and sage would quickly outgrow one, and rosemary is notoriously finicky to grow indoors anyway.
