Pot up a minis­cape Gar­den on a grand scale in a small space

Better Homes and Gardens (Australia) - - Contents -

you can cre­ate any self­con­tained scene you can dream – from a flow­er­ing for­est or fairy glen to a trop­i­cal jungle – in a few sim­ple steps. All you need to land­scape in minia­ture are plants, peb­bles and fig­urines. And when it comes to the planter, any­thing goes – shal­low bowls, me­tal laun­dry tubs, even suit­cases!

Team with a theme in your minis­cape. Go alpine or trop­i­cal, it’s up to you. Just choose plants that will thrive in your area and give them the right po­si­tion and wa­ter.

A whole new world in minia­ture needs paths, doors, bridges, an­i­mals and more. Love the suit­case idea? Just wa­ter­proof, line with plas­tic, then add drainage holes!
