A miniature garden pond adds another dimension to the scene. That’s a Blue Star Juniper on the left and the bottom of a Compressa Juniper, to the right.
Update to 3-22: This is a photo essay that I took in June of 2012 of my display for the big Sorticulture Garden Art Festival held in Everett, Wa, every year. You can see the variety of possibilities with this wonderful hobby: your miniature garden can be simple, with just a plant or two, or as complex as a miniature farm to play with for the summer. It can be a fairy garden or just a place for your eye to sit and relax and enjoy…
Miniature Gardening at the Sorticulture Garden Art Show. Miniature Gardening at the Sorticulture Garden Art Show. Our annual exhibit that has become almost a tradition after 7 years. (UPDATE to 2022: Our 10 years of displaying has ended, the new show is now located in downtown Everett.) Miniature Fairy House for the Miniature Garden. That’s a wee pug sleeping on the bench. Miniature Garden with a mini garden tribute: a wee chair, pots and bird on a pedestal. That’s a Jean Iseli Hinoki Cypress, with the New Zealand Brass Buttons on the left and Scottish Moss on the right. The big(ger) rosettes are Hens and Chicks. Miniature Farm Garden with Chicken Coop and Vegetable Garden. Too much fun. Miniature Farm Garden Tractor. The bumper sticker says, “Eat Dirt.” Customized by our Steve Calvo here at our studios. Miniature Farm Garden with real miniature tomatoes called ‘Tom Thumb.’ The other vegetables are single Hen and Chicks lined up to look like cabbages. We’ll see how it grows together once we get it back from the show. The blue tree in the upper left corner is a Squarrosa Intermedia Sawara Cypress that has been trained to look like a miniature orchard tree. Miniature Garden in a trug is just too sweet of a combination! That lovely shrub on the left behind the bench is a Cis Korean Fir, the vine on the right is Pixie Clematis. Miniature fairy beds are fun to decorate how you like. We used sheet moss for the mattress and reindeer moss for the pillows. That’s an artificial garland twirled up the canopy of the bed.
