For a di­nosaur minia­ture gar­den, you will need an old wash­ing-up bowl or a clean lit­ter tray with some drainage holes made in the base. Fill it with grow­ing medium. Choose pre­his­toric-look­ing plants such as small ferns and moss – it is fun to add some herbs such as creep­ing mints or car­pet­ing thymes so that when the di­nosaurs fight among the leaves a fra­grance is re­leased. If you want the plas­tic di­nosaurs to stand up­right in the minia­ture gar­den, leave some un­planted space and put down a flat stone or tile. An in­door minia­ture gar­den fol­lows the same prin­ci­ples, but uses small off­sets of cacti and suc­cu­lents and the sur­face is dressed with fine gravel or per­lite. Peb­bles and small toys can be added
