Miniature Garden for Eastern Washington
This miniature garden lives in Grandview, Washington. The clients wanted a garden for part shade, hardy, asymmetrical and with a pond. They loved it!

The most powerful miniature garden images come from gardens that have been growing and weaving together for years. A lot of miniature gardens that you see ‘garden experts’ create online simply don’t adhere to the main garden principle: right plant, right place. They are too often treated as temporary arrangements that will outgrow or die within the season. If this sounds way too familiar, read on.

If you have been disappointed in the results of your miniature gardens, there are easy ways to hone your skills so you can experience a successful and happy mini garden that can last for years. But first, you may want to spend a bit of time deciding where to grow your garden, then choose right plants to suit that area. Here’s a link to our 101 Series for you to browse through, refresh your memory and see what tips and techniques you can add to your arsenal.

Working with the Seasons

One of the main questions is winter care, and this goes hand-in-hand with “right plant, right place.” Either you are planting a garden with cold-hardy plants that can stay outside all winter long OR you are using tender plants that can survive the indoor winter climate that you can move outside next summer. Only in the more temperate areas of the country – meaning the southern states – can you leave your tender plants outside for the winter months.

Here is a mini-directory of previous blog posts to help you get the right information you need in order to grow a successful miniature garden.
