Think small and inside the pot

If you’re over 50 you probably remember the shocking mini-skirt fad. These days the word mini is applied to cars, as in Mini Coopers, or sports as in mini-golf. If you like to bake, you may have used mini morsels in your cookies or mini muffins. And, if you follow gardening trends, you’re probably well aware of the great popularity of Mini Gardens. Which is why we’re encouraging plant lovers to think small and inside the pot at our Mini Garden Workshop, Saturday, June 16, from 10 – 3 PM. Similar to our container gardening workshops, you may bring in your own pot or purchase one here. The soil and design help is free.

If you haven’t been following the latest gardening trends and are wondering exactly what a Mini Garden is, think for a moment of the most enchanting, picturesque garden you’ve ever encountered. Perhaps there was a path of stepping stones, a wood bridge or arbor that magically accented a host of unique plants. There may have been an old wooden bench to sit on, or a gazing ball reflecting streams of light. Now, imagine scaling down and re-creating that wonderful garden experience and environment in a container you can enjoy in the comfort of your own home or yard.

Whether you plan on enjoying your dream garden indoors, with a collection of small tropicals, or outdoors on your deck or patio with mini evergreens and perennials, our resident mini-garden gurus, will be on deck to help you create the mini garden of your dreams.
