Summer enchantment in a jar!
A dear friend and fellow gardener has her birthday in mid-February when there’s nothing happening in our gardens. Like me, she is longing for better weather and being outdoors with green plants all around. So, this year, I decided to make a tiny jar of summer enchantment to carry her through until spring!
Follow these easy steps to make your own little bit of summer enchantment to chase those winter blues away. When the big garden is sleeping, planting a little one will help keep that gardener’s itch at bay.
Assemble your materials : pebbles, activated charcoal, potting soil, tiny ivy & fern plants, dried or live moss, a glass container and accents. Put the charcoal and pebbles in first to provide drainage.
Trim the plant roots to about one-third their original size before planting in the terrarium.
After planting and watering in your plants, add dried or fresh moss and little accents like a seated fairy and tiny clay pots.
This tiny fairy and her garden are ready to be a birthday gift for my friend!
