Miniature Garden Resources and Inspiration

A few months ago we were excited about this amazing miniature garden and we've been on the lookout for other mini-landscapes ever since. Whether you're enamored with miniatures or have limited or no outdoor space, take a gander at these inspirational gardens (and find resources for creating your own after the jump.)

Miniature Gardens can be as simple or ornate as you like. Look around your house and your kids' toy box for small things to include. The shops below carry a wonderful supply of plants, pebbles, statues, furniture and all kinds of accessories. Also check out your local dollhouse stores.
