This is such a wonderful article. Thanks for sharing. I have a designated spot for a fairy garden and hope that at long last, this fall I will be able to get it in place. Your mention of the different flowers lead me to know I have what it takes to keep the fairys around. Including some Elfin Thyme I purchased this year not knowing that it would make a nice dancing pad for the fairys when they find my little niche.
Hope to find you writing more on Dave Garden about your Fairy Garden.
I have had a fairy garden for years and have always added to it. Some plants are just so great there - miniature hostas, mosses, armeria, mini lady's mantle, dwarf hanoki cypress - not to mention the little folks and their pond.
