well its on my to to list . i cant do anything untill i finish my pathways . then i can plan more beds around them including my mini bed . i was gonna put it in another spot but it wouldnt have worked . to many big things around it . that mini fuchsia is only 4-6 inches tall its perfect for a mini garden. its called shadow dancer martha . look up shadow dancer in plant files and there are others in that series . to bad its an annual . at least i know where to get them now. i just hope they have them next yr. there was only 2 when i went .

I think it is adorable, and I'd have picked one up, too :0)

I'll bet you could overwinter it in a windowsill just fine, or sunny spot near a window...

HI all,

I saw some of these at Lowes. They were not labeled, but I am sure they are the same.

Dana-
you could start a co-op with those fuchsias, if you went back and picked them all up, lol...

So do you have a tree stump, or tree with large base? I am going to get this set for my Mom. And, the light really works:

Sort of an "instagarden" for fairies, and would be easy to add a few plants to, and be done :0)

(dana)Owensboro, KY(Zone 6a)

well someone bought them all up . there was only 2 when i went and i got one of them.lol
i have 3 big trees the 2 in the back are gonna be part of a shade bed if i can ever get over there. those doors would be so cute . ill probably get some . i was dreaming about a 4x6 lotus bog last night . i have so many plans .

Do you have any racoons in your area? Or opossums?...one word of advice. Keep it to plants-only, if you do a bog, or pond. If you add fish, the fish will attract nightly supper hunters and they'll dig around and mess up your pond nightly...

ask me how I know, lol...:0)

(dana)Owensboro, KY(Zone 6a)

lol no big fish but the thread i was reading said to add a few regular goldfish. we only have squirrels . as far as i know . i think we are to far from any woods or habitat . we basically live in an aviary though . big trees in all the yards around here and the birds are almost tame . theyll come and get worms with us sitting here as long as we arnt up moving around.

ok, ...........................:0)

I had goldfish, too...key word "had", lol...it is like "insert goldfish, and they will come..."...you find out just what kind of wildlife is out there, that you didn't realize was there. They can smell the goldfish from great distances

My neighbor had a little pond, too, and the egrets kept landing every other day, to eat his, until they were all gone.

I now have a small aquarium inside to house the two little goldfish lucky survivors I managed to have left, before I removed them, lol

i have a big fat black ranchu in the house . . i cant seem to find a good source for lotus seeds though .

(Taylor) Plano, TX(Zone 8a)

try a florist, or Michael's or hobby lobby's dried flower arrangements. The dried lotus have seeds in them, and I'm told they'll sprout.

lol i read that to. i just got some from georgia vines along with some giant hollyhocks . i have no idea where im gonna put them . there should be a giant plant forum to go with the tiny one lol.

i probably wont put goldfish in . it seems mean . the water is gonna be a bog not a pond .
lol we are way off topic here . haha

(dana)Owensboro, KY(Zone 6a)

lacewing , did you pick any up ? mine is in partial shade and i need to move it to full . its to hot and humid here i can put it on my porch .
