Welcome to Tiny Green Gardens!

I've always been fascinated by tiny things and plants are no exception. The recent revival of interest in miniature gardens and terrariums have led to the highly popular concept of fairy gardening. I invite you to join me on my tiny gardening endeavors and I'll share with you my successes and hopefully, not too many failures.

Along the way, I'll also share some of my favorite tiny green gardening decorations, accessories and plants; many of which can be found online.

Tim and Gerty, my little frog and worm mascots, say hello. They will be along for the ride and are excited about being a part of this site and can't wait to meet the fairies who will be visiting our tiny green gardens.
