Go Minature – Tiny Container Gardens

mini home garden

You know, most people think of something else when we talk about container gardening.  Made from living plants this creation by John Millman is an extraordinary work of craftsmanship and design.  I think every garden needs one! (especially mine)

Plant List:

moss from the side of a building

echeveria

hens&chicks

weeping rosemary

creeping thyme

a bonsai tree

dwarf mondo grass

kingsville boxwood

Combine creatively with black fine sand, rocks, little bamboo sticks, tiny pots, and a (hypertufa?) house.

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.

    I love these little container gardens. There is an entire blog dedicated to them that I read from time to time. Here’s a link:

    Amazing! Ok, maybe this is the year that I tell the kids to get me supplies to make one of those. I drooled over all the little pieces and parts at a garden store in Geneva, IL last year. And now I’m drooling again.
