My sister just loves fairies so for her birthday two years ago I made her this fairy garden. She has a black thumb so the poor garden only lasted about six months. She's gotten a bit better with plants since (I've been seriously coaching her) but I still wouldn't make another of these for her as they really need a lot of attention in order to stay pretty. :)

The two tall 'palm tree' looking plants are succulents. I'm not sure what they are called. I found them at a flea market garden shop. The owner did not want to sell them to me when he learned what I was going to use them for as he said they grow very big. I was not concerned about the size as I knew I would eventually take them out of her fairy garden before she killed them. Smiling To the left of the "palm" is a miniature rose and some other succulents. The "grass" is scottish moss. I'll be putting her fairy garden back together soon (but keep it at my house this time). The rose died as did the moss. The rest of the plants are alive...barely...but I will bring them back to my place and will nurse them back to health.

I havent had much luck with scottish moss, or maybe it was irish moss. I cant remember anymore LOL. I just bought my first mini succulents at a garage sale. I dont know the names of them either but they were too cute to pass up Whistling Now I just need to find the time to incorporate them into a mini garden.

Sally, those plants are fabulous. I haven't seen any like that. And your right, a mini garden is a good place to start anything. If it out grows it, just change plants. I love your garden.
