Creating an Enchanting Fairy Garden with Fairy Houses

Before You Get Started

Maybe you should invite all your fairy garden friends over, get dressed up and make a planting party? That would certainly create a lot of inspiration. Or how about asking everyone to bring a pumpkin for hollowing out to be used as a Halloween container?

Ingredients

Layout and Design

Fill up your container with potting soil and arrange all the fairy garden Halloween pieces. This planter is pretty simple but many more items could be added. See Halloween for more ideas. We chose to be a bit color coordinated for this one.

Planting

Begin your planter by planting the largest plants first then add the rest. Press the soil firmly down around the plants and be sure to fill it up to the brim with potting soil. Now add the pea gravel to make a nice clean look.

Adding Accessories

Always add the fairy cottages first. That is usually the largest item and will determinate the layout of the rest of the garden.

How to Take Care of Your Fairy Garden

This is sunny fairy garden container. Water regularly and fertilize weekly while the days are still hot. When it turns cooler cut back to every 2 weeks.

Afterthoughts

The Halloween Container would be an awesome hostess gift!
