    I was hoping for a tiny bit more about plants but I got a lot of inspiration from this book. Favorite projects: Wardian Case & Broken-Pot Gardening.

No every miniature I see can be turned into a wonderful part of a garden. I also loved the section on tools needed. I ever thought about using my nail polish to paint small items. I know the craft shop is going to love seeing me come and my porches and several places in my house are going to be wonderful with all the miniature gardens I am envisioning in my minds eye thanks to this book. I received this book from the Author or Publisher via Netgalley.com to read and review.

Others use tile work that increases the complexity. Two of my favorites are the Zen Sand Garden and the Wardian Case. The Gardening in Miniature Prop Shop is great especially for the whimsical child that stays within us as adults. The publisher through Net Galley provided a copy.

    What an absolute delight this book is! If you've been in any Michael's store lately, you've likely noticed that miniature gardens are really taking off now, with almost an entire aisle devoted to the little figures and furniture you'll need to get started. My own city of Atlanta has a non-profit group dedicated to installing tiny fairy doors throughout the city, and since I first spotted one of those doors a couple of years ago, I've been enamored with making little miniature tableaus myself.

Not being much of a green thumb, the small amount of work required for these mini gardens is right up my alley! I expected this book to be more of an "inspiration" book than anything, but it truly guides you step-by-step in creating each scene. The photography is excellent. I just love this book! I plan to buy a copy to give to my mom, who enjoys both gardening and whimsy. Highly recommended for anyone with an interest in miniatures who thinks that dollhouses are a bit too old-fashioned.

    I always was a big fan of fairy gardens and miniatures. While reading this book I was wowed by beautiful pictures and simple yet creative ideas. While this book might not be the best for experienced owner of miniature garden, I think everyone can find some ideas to try. The introduction to the book is very informative and easy to understand. All book is full of close-up photos makes it even easier to follow the instructions. I personally adored Fairy Haven and Gnome Garden.

    I am an avid reader of the author's blog so I was expecting this book, which I won in a Goodreads giveaway, to be fantastic and it is. Each project is present in detail and illustrated in color. There is great attention to detail but is also artistically presented inspires creativity. I highly recommend the book. It's well worth your time.

    This is a gardening trend? I had no idea... The ideas in here are interesting—if you're into miniatures— and the step-by-step directions seem very complete, though I've not done one project presented here. Not my thing, but as a life-long crafter, I can imagine the appeal. My only criticism is a better understanding of scale as many of the aging techniques seem too rough. So, if you're into this trend, go for it. This is a gardening trend? I had no idea...

    This was an interesting little book but a little too in depth for my shaky hands. These were cute ideas that would dress up any garden or room. I would just say that the person who was making this would have to be very precise and steady. Not for me.

    As with all Timber Press books, the paper and pictures are high quality. The projects are explained very clearly with many pictures. I'm giving this 3 stars because I found only a few project useful for *me*. I particularly liked the creation of the Hobbit Door.
