  1. how deep is the container? im making my own container and want to know how deep to make it so the plants are happy.

    This container was about 4 inches deep, and the plastic liner is more like 3 inches. We used plants with very shallow root systems. Good luck with your garden, Amelia!

  15. Mimosa Books and Gifts

    If you have a local craft store or garden center I’d check there first, otherwise you can order it through Oriental Trading Company or Amazon.

    All I can tell you is, when it gets to the right scene in Peter Pan, she claps every time.

  22. Absolutely gorgeous fairy garden and great tutor with interesting and informative taching style. Just one thing are the toadstools ornaments or real??

  23. Mimosa Books and Gifts

    LOL, no, I’m afraid they’re plastic!

    You should not plant succulents in normal potting soil as it lead to root rot, try using actual cacti or succulent soil!

  25. Mimosa Books and Gifts

    That’s a good idea, especially since it’s set in a plastic liner. Fortunately, we haven’t had any trouble so far, as long as we’re careful about watering.

  26. I am new to miniature gardening, wondering how the container is made, is it dried moss sheet? What about the plastic sheet? Not sure where to buy those.

  27. Mimosa Books and Gifts

    A large craft supply store will usually have these items. I’ve seen things like this at JoAnn Fabrics, and also at larger garden centers. You might have to buy the container and the moss separately, though.
