Example text

Materials Small glass tumblers in a holder Ground shells Small kitchen tongs Plants: Aloe claviflora Echeveria setosa var. deminuta (Mexican firecracker) Euphorbia enopla (spurge) Euphorbia horrida var. striata (spurge) Oreocereus trollii Pachyphytum oviferum (moonstone) 1 Clean the glass tumblers and dry them thoroughly. Spoon some of the ground shells into the bottom of each glass. Using the kitchen tongs, put one plant (still in its plastic pot) in each tumbler, adding more ground shells underneath if necessary so that the rim of the pot is about ¾in (2cm) lower than the rim of the tumbler.

An elegant stone urn is ideal, but any pot or dish with a wide rim will do. I have chosen plants with small-scale foliage and flowers, adding toadstools, little pine cones in a basket, and some tiny gardening tools to help the fairies keep the garden looking good. materials Stone urn Drainage crocks Soil-less potting mix Hand pruners (secateurs) Twigs Waterproof adhesive Moss available from florists Flat pebbles for the path Fairy accessories such as miniature toadstools Clothes pin and raffia for the fairy (optional) Plants: Allium cyaneum (dark blue garlic) Anemone blanda (windflower) Leucojum aestivum (summer snowflake) Primula vulgaris (common primrose) for fairy hat and skirt Saxifraga X apiculata ‘Alba’ (saxifrage) Trifolium repens ‘Purpurascens’ (ornamental clover) 1 Clean out the urn.

I have also included a list of the plants used in each project, which can be followed closely or simply used for inspiration. A visit to your local garden center should provide you with all that you need, with on-line gardening stores making more specialist plants readily available. I recommend using soil-less potting mix for most of the projects unless something more specific is required—you are probably unlikely to want to invest in a range of different potting media if you are gardening on a small scale.
