Fairy Gardens are popular ways to incorporate plants into every day life while evoking the mystery and magic of fairies. These miniature gardens are typically in pots, although you can create a Fairy Garden in your yard. Gardens include a variety of plants and accessories such as pottery; plastic animals and fencing; miniature arbors and gazebos; lamp posts; recycled lanterns; home-made walking paths; rivers with bridges; croquet games; scooters; mailboxes; pine cones, seeds and dry flower pods; and ceramic mushrooms. Some people even use edging material, cement and pebbles to create a patio for their miniature garden or tie twigs together to make a bridge.
