I have several fairy gardening books but, this is among one of my very favorites. The pictures and ideas are amazing. You can get lost in it's pages. It can really fire your imagination if you love to garden and are into fairy gardens. Even if you don't garden it is very enjoyable just look through the pages an enjoy all the creativity of the makers. Each garden has a rhythm and symmetry expressed by each artist that designed it. This book would be great for anyone from children to people who still have a child that lives within them. This a a beautiful book filled with imagination and fun!

This is one of the two best books on Miniature Gardens. I just got into this hobby and I am really enjoying learning about it. This book is both visual and very informative.

I have been making mini gardens for several year, this book helped me take it to a new level.

There are more ideas with beautiful pictures than I can ever begin to describe. It covers it all......and ideas you would never have thought about. I love this book. You won't be disappointed!

I am a visual learner, so my favorite thing about this book is that it has big, colorful photographs. You could easily glean dozens of ideas for miniature gardens, terrariums, and dish gardens without actually "reading" this book-- just by flipping through it. The processes used are explained in short step-by-step instructions that even a beginner could follow. My favorite garden described in the book is the underwater aerium, which has step-by-step instructions for making a "jellyfish" out of an air plant and a sea urchin shell. There is also a section of plant profiles to help you select the right kind of plants for a mini garden. This book along with the supplies to make one of the gardens would make the cutest gift.

Very informative, concise and extremely helpful in making my own miniature gardens.I really enjoyed the book and return to it often for new ideas.Highly recommended.

This book was comprehensive in its quest to help the beginner learn all the basics about design, plant choice, and various options for layout.

An absolute delight! Every page I turned only inspired me more! Just a few pages in and the winter blahs were forgotten. Now all I can think about is finding some funky containers to house my new gardens. Information, instructions, pictures, and examples, from start to finish it is all you need to know and see to create a work of living art! The "Underwater Aerium" using tillandsias on page 134 is my favorite but page 145 gives instructions on how to create a "Canning Jar Terrarium", so cute and perfect for gift giving or an activity with kids and friends!
