Miniature Garden

I started a miniature garden a few weeks ago but I don't know if you can tell what's what from the photo. I made a house from twigs using a glue gun, then covered the top with soggy moss. The doors were made from a couple of corner stretchers that come with a blank canvas. There is a little chair also made of twigs. The steps made from broken plant pots. Trees are rosemary, hebe and fir and plants include ameria martima, a tiny thyme and some kind of succulent. We shall have to wait and see if it thrives.

  1. A 'live' garden will take some time to 'settle'. About moss, on Japanese TV I saw how to make moss grow beautifully on a stone wall. Make a mixture of yoghurt, soil and moss, and 'paint' the wall. The yoghurt acts as a fertiliser.
    Good luck with your 'live art'.
