Gardening in Miniature, now in it's 5th printing!
Woot! We’re doing the happy dance! Over 37,000 copies in print – but we’re still a-ways-away from this new hobby being as common as knitting.

The Biggest Revolution in Garden History is Still Growing Slowly Into the Heart of America

Our latest order from our publisher for our Gardening in Miniature book brought a little celebration with it. We are now in our 5th printing! There are now 37,273 copies in print! Woot! We’ve made terrific progress to date, but there is still much to do to spread the joy of gardening in miniature!

Whaddaya mean “still much to do?”

So, after 16 years of spreading and promoting the hobby throughout the world, there are still people who don’t know what miniature

This was the stand-in cover the publisher created while the arrangements were made for shooting the official cover.

gardening is. Our mission is to make it as well known as a knitting. When someone says, “I’m a knitter.” you know what that means, right? Well, more often than not, when I tell people what I do, the usual response it, “What is that?” and I kick into my elevator speech:

“Miniature gardening is just like full-size gardening, but miniaturized. We use true miniature and dwarf trees, shrubs and perennials and plant tiny gardens complete with a patio, little furniture and a maybe a birdbath or a tiny garden sculpture. The garden can be eight inches wide or eight feet long. It grows and weaves itself together like a full-sized garden – but in miniature. We sell the plants, parts and pieces so that others can make their own little worlds. In other words, we sell fun.”

So, if you are a miniature gardener, and I’ve mentioned this before, there STILL is a very good chance that you can be THE FIRST PERSON to introduce this hobby to a family member, friend, coworker, child, neighbor or your congressman! You have a chance to rock their world with something they have never seen before. Now, get out there and share the miniature garden love! :o)

This was the bookplate made from the Cover Girl Garden that I made for the first 100 copies sold. It was fun watching the familiar names of our faithful Fellow Miniature Gardeners come through during the pre-sale launch in 2013.

Cover Girl Redux. Years ago, I was advised to “stick my finger in it” when I photographed my miniature gardens because people couldn’t tell they were miniature.

Our Cover Girl today, June 24, 2016. She is still doing fine after living in this container for the last six years. Previously, this tree was in one of our in-ground gardens.
