The last time I posted about my super cool fairy garden, I didn’t have too many things going on around fairy land. These pictures are a bit out dated because I’ve updated the garden since. I’ll show these updates from a couple of months ago first.
I definitely underestimated the amount of work that needs to be done to maintain a fairy garden. As of right now, before I post current pictures, I need to do a little bit of cleaning. There are a lot of webs, leaves, and debris that needs clearing before pictures can be taken.
Some things I learned in fairy land:
- If you decide to do a fairy garden, treat it like real estate. Location, location, location! It matters where you place it. If you put it under a tree, choose one that doesn’t release a lot of debris. Flowers, pollen, fruit or leaves can make a big mess. I placed mine under a tree with all that not so fun stuff.
- Mulch! It’s your best friend. It makes your fairy garden look tidy and all the bright colors pop.
- Maintenance is required! I let mine go and it got bad. Every few days, webs should be cleared, and any stray objects/debris should be picked up.
- Have fun! Nothing can be perfect, so don’t stress it!
