    Cute...how about some little twig branches for the fairies to sit on?
    • Riki Grant Riki Grant on Apr 18, 2014
      @Mimi Love Thanks heaps for the suggestion I will be making some little pieces of fairy furniture in the next couple of days. :)

    How are your succulents doing? I want to make one with Succulents but I am afriad I will kill the ones I have....lol

      @Kristy - Hello, my succulents are doing fantastic.. I know it says below that they need drainage holes but I have been growing them in a variety of containers, jars, vases, bowls and have found that they grow amazingly. Obviously I have a only tried a few varieties though.

    Put in some taller plants and a little rock fairy wall

      @Ellen Dunlap Hello, thank you soo much for your advice, I am not putting taller plants in there as these ones grow very quickly. :)

    Do the containers have drainage holes? That's very important. The accessories are are cute but I would put at least 3 plants in each to give it balance. Feel free to look at my miniature garden album on facebook. Laney Rogers

      @Laney Rogers Hi no the containers do not have drainage holes but I have had a lot of success growing succulents in a variety of different vessels and have had nothing but success, that's why I am not too concerned about that. Thank you though :)

    do you have pebbles in the bottom of the containers? if not what are you using to help drain the water so its not standing?

    super cute. We like to have ours more dimensional, like two levels. By adding bits of broken pot you could achieve that.
  • E4lizerd E4lizerd on Apr 18, 2014
    Big is fun too
  • Jen R Jen R on Apr 18, 2014
    I agree, they need some height. As you stated above, this may come with the growth of the plants, but in the mean time, either a branch or some other tall add on. They look great!

    Great start you have it all. What you are looking for can be accomplished by making paths with sand or tiny beads that will break up the natural circular pattern allowing you to view each individual area that is so sweet. You could also use some hard bark mulch to add dimension or break up the soil. Your ideas are wonderful always remember less is more.
