It’s a beautiful day and you want to spend it outside. How about going on a mini garden adventure? There are so many ways that you can create your own little outdoor paradise without spending too much money. In this blog post, we will share 11 steps of how to start a mini garden from scratch!
Step 1: Decide on a theme
Decide on a theme for your garden. This will help you narrow down the plants that you might want to include in your mini garden later on. Do you want a theme of flowers? Herbs? Vegetables? Or maybe all three?!
Step 2: Decide on the plants you want to include in your mini garden.
Make sure they are all compatible and that there won’t be any problems growing together! There’s nothing worse than trying to plant something that just can’t survive because it needs too much sun or not enough water. If you’re having trouble deciding which palms and exotic plants to include in your mini garden try True Green Nursery.
Step 3: Design the garden
Sketch out your ideas on paper and think about how you want the plants to be arranged in your mini garden.
Step 4: Choose a location
Choose a location and pick a container while keeping in mind you want enough depth to maintain soil moisture while allowing water to drain freely.
Step 5: Dig
Grab your trowel and get ready to dig in! As with any container plant, ensure good drainage. Use a quality soil mix for best results (the kind meant for full-sized landscaping). If you’re looking for an authentic look like what can be found at botanical gardens or on old western movie sets – use flagstones set into the sand beds below bridges as mini stone walls that will make this little oasis feel much bigger than it is small.
Step 6: Accessorise
The magic of a fairy garden is in the details. The items you place will bring your imagination to life and inspire smiles for years to come! Balance authenticity with light-handedness so that all can enjoy this magical space without feeling overwhelmed or underwhelmed by what’s around them.
The best part about making one yourself? There are no rules: You get creative control over every aspect; when guests stroll through their own private awe, everyone has something unique – even if it means hiding some things better than others (but don’t forget those little eyes!). A small detail might be enough to make someone stay longer on an especially cold day…and who knows how many good memories are being made through this mini garden adventure!
Step 7: Plant and Maintain
Now we’re ready for the most fun part! Planting and maintaining are just as important steps of creating a beautiful little outside oasis that will bring happiness into your life. Don’t forget to take care of it regularly.
Take great care of your little piece of paradise. You’ve spent a lot of time and effort creating the perfect environment for it, so don’t let anything ruin that beautiful creation! Make sure to water it often and give it plenty of sunlight.
Water thoroughly, checking every day for about a week so that it doesn’t dry out too quickly before water can get fully into the pots!
Bring out that inner gardener and enjoy the fruits of your labor. Your little oasis will flourish with the time, love, and energy you’ve poured into it. Invite friends over to share in the beauty together.
Take a picture of what you have accomplished and post it on social media for other garden enthusiasts to see! Have fun with this project and enjoy the outdoors after all that hard work has been done.
