Now Let me assume you have done all the shopping to collect the raw materials to start making your fairy garden.
Choose the container that finds suitable for you, be it an orange pumpkin, or birdbath or wash bin or glass terrarium. Clean it properly and make sure it has drainage holes so that excess water will drain away; otherwise your plant’s roots are going to rot very soon due to over dampness .
Mix the potting soil and peat moss, perlite and vermiculite and fill it in the container. Water it slightly so that water get drains to the bottom of container. Fill the top of the container with stones and rounded pebbles. This will help to prevent evaporation of water from top soil.
Plant some succulents or some grass to add decoration. Make sure you have done enough homework on how to plant and where to plant. Then place the fairy house or hut if you have one and make sure you create a rock pathway also.
Now, start gluing the small decorative stuffs to add extra decoration to your fairy garden. Then spray water using sprayer or mister. Check out how to convert broken pots into awesome fairy garden.
