Isn’t this the cutest little window box? I was looking for just the tiny pot to plant some tiny succulents in…



What do you think? Any miniature gardeners out there? If you’re new to the world of microscopic gardens, Two Green Thumbs is a great resource!

LOL My daughter saw that first pic and thought “Toy horse water trough!” (which, of course, it would be great for! LOL

That’s so unbelievably cute! I could see lining bookshelves with these, just the same way you might use votives to decorate. Cute!

I think your daughter is subtly telling you she wants a pony for her birthday!

That’s fantastic. I have a very cool wooden tea box from Maui that I plan to use for succulents.

Just found this page… Awesome! Where could I find such a tiny planter (a craft store maybe)? Thanks.

Very cute! It’s what gardening is essentially about…appreciating the largest tree down to the smallest bloom or plant.

You are spot on. With today’s busy lifestyle and the increase of single person home units, small gardens are definitely the trend. Not only are they easy to manage, but, as you’ve highlighted, there is plenty of equipment available to make this a fun and beautiful way to enjoy brighten up the home.

Lol! That is great … definitely something the kids would enjoy getting a kick out of.
