I'm thinking about making a 3rd mini garden this summer that's kind of a homestead scene that has a tiny "veggie" garden with a few cute little rows, tiny scarecrow... thoughts/shared ideas/pics welcome!

Here's some little pots that decorate my bigger mini garden, some established for a while, some have a few new things added, some were just put together. The little Sedum bits haven't had a chance to take root yet, kind of this summers' before pics.

TYVM! Yes, they are wine corks. The blue paint is fading, but I kind of like that. It's looking less newly-contrived.

These little guys look better after a few weeks, the newer plants have had a chance to adjust & get going again, and there are a few new pots.

Kalanchoe marnieriana & a couple diff Rhipsalis.

Sedum kimnachii & a couple Sedeveria leaf-babies, a little snippet of Jade (Crassula 'Hobbit.')
Thumb of 2016-05-27/purpleinopp/7d45a7
K. marnieriana, Rhipsalis teres, Sedum sarmentosum, something else.

Echeveria harmsii, R. teres, S. sarmentosum.

Jade (C. 'Hobbit,' S. sarmentosum.)
Thumb of 2016-05-27/purpleinopp/a24725
Sempervivum or Jovibarba (not sure,) another mystery "something else," Sedum morganianum leaf babies (mama leaf is gone by now) and the other 2 babies are probably K. marnieriana but I'm not sure at that size.

A micro-Sedum that's a mystery to me, Graptosedum, Haworthia cooperi.

Micro pots. The red plants are jelly bean (Sedum rubrotinctum.)

Sedeveria leaf babies (in another wine cork.)

TYVM! The older ones are about 3 yrs old. I've snipped a few pieces off here'n'there but nothing has had to be repotted yet. The Sedum sarmentosum in the newer pots probably won't last long before it has to go. That can really get going.

I do the same thing with broken off pieces of succulents! You have a very nice collection of plants! Smiling

Toying with the idea of wire holders for tiny pots, to stick in other pots & kind of hang above the plants in the main pot.

Some new & updated tiny pots & cork pots.

Love those ideas!

Did you make the pots? Or did you find cute little pots like that somewhere?

TYVM! The clay pots were purchased. The corks came from wine, I hollowed them out.

I can't take credit for the idea but glad you're enjoying being turned onto it! ;)

I propagated some babies from this snake plant leaf to use in mini while they're tiny. IDK how long that will be.
