If you love fairy gardens, fairy lore or just think you might then you should purchase this book! Betty Earl does a wonderful job educating the reader in the history of fairies and how to attract them to your garden. She provides comprehensive information on miniature plants and how to care for them. Wondering how to decorate and furnish your miniature world? No worries she tells you how you do that too. Lots of gorgeous photos featuring every style of miniature garden you can imagine. This is a book I will read again and again.

I couldn't put down the book; it's fascinating. So much solid information on how to create gorgeous miniature gardens worthy of a fairy! I learned a lot about fairy legends,too. Terrific book for children. The photos alone will delight the young and old.

I have been fairy gardening for about 13 years. I teach a workshop on building fairy furniture and fairy houses. I recently read Fairy Gardens: A Guide to Growing an Enchanted Miniature World. I now recommend it to everyone who has questions about Fairy Gardening. The author did an amazing job with researching and explaining this type of miniature gardening. This book needs to be a part of every gardeners book collection.

I must be one of the few people in the gardening world who has not yet caught on to the fun of fairy gardening. However, after reading this book, I'm completely hooked! Based on the information and ideas in this book, I know how my daughter and I are going to spend our time on Mother's Day--creating our first fairy garden! Thank you Betty for providing such usable ideas and how-to's.

Format: Paperback
Thanks to the publisher for providing me a review copy of this delightful book, which combines the magic of fairy lore and gardening in a fun and whimsical manner.

My favorite part of the book is the chapter on plant selection. The list of plants by sun/shade and moisture requirements is extremely helpful. The author gives in-depth descriptions and has photos of many of the plants.

Don't forget to take a copy of Fairy Gardens with you when you visit your local nursery or garden center to choose your plants!

If you are looking for extensive pictures to copy to start your garden, this is not the book for you. If you need good technical information, both for containers and for open space gardens, this is the book for you. Its as simple as that. I will confess to wanting the pictures, but wound up with a book that did teach me several things that I didn't realize, so I got the best book after all. Don't get me wrong, there are a few pictures, but the technical information is far more valuable in the long run. I used my own creativity, and now we have a green, healthy little garden with a resident fairy living in a teapot house, and my granddaughters are enthralled. Everybody's happy in our miniature world.

I'm a lifelong dollhouse and miniature lover. I've always wished I knew how to incorporate live plants into my dollhouses and miniature rooms. "Fairy Gardens: A Guide to Growing an Enchanted Miniature World" offers information about many kinds of plants that work well with the scaled-down world of miniatures. Some of the projects (such as fairy doors) are so simple that children can easily do them. I wish I'd had this book when I was growing up!

Format: Paperback
As a professional horticulturist I sometimes receive books to review and say yay or nay. This is one of those books. Next week is Mother's Day and if she is a gardener, let me suggest a book for her. "Fairy Gardens" by Betty Earl is a delightful book beckoning you into the miniature world of fairies, elves and other little people. It's a guide that takes you through making, creating, plant selection and suggestions for indoor and outdoor use. This is a great idea to get children interested in gardening too! This is something manageable for their small hands and you can watch the joy in their eyes as the magical little world comes to life for them.It also works well for the child in all of us!
