My Fairy Garden

I've been anxious to create my own fairy garden for quite awhile. I first saw one last fall, but the weather was already cooling down and it wasn't a great time to start growing stuff outside. But now the weather is warmer and I finally have a magical little fairy house ready for some prime property.

Lucky for me I have the perfect place in mind. There is a small piece of pottery by our front door that currently contains some less than inviting, dead frost damaged foliage. It will be fun to display an inviting little landscape that welcomes visitors.


  • fairy house
  • pottery dish
  • potting soil
  • small leaved plants
  • crushed shells or small pebbles


You can purchase a pre-made fairy house. However, it's not difficult to create your own. I made this one for less than $5.

The size of your fairy house determines how large of a planter you need. My house is about the size of a coffee cup so I was able to use a small piece of pottery that is about 12 inches wide and 6 inches deep.

I have irrigation that runs to this piece, but it is not necessary if you don't minds watering by hand.

When I was choosing plants at the nursery, I quickly discovered that there are a lot of varieties of herbs that have small leaves and are perfect for a miniature garden scene.

I chose a rose scented geranium because it looked like a tiny tree. It's perfect for my fairy's yard.

Next, an upright rosemary. This plant looks like a charming little evergreen.

Finally a couple of pink chintz thyme. They look like lush fairy shrubbery to me. I love the delicate purple flowers.

Fill your container with dirt. Position your plants. Before placing your house, water the plants.

Add a dainty path to the house with some small pebbles or crushed shells.

Your landscape is ready for its magical residents to move in.
