Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

As a portal back to childhood, a time when one’s imagination spins magical tales, miniature gardens are precious, and the subtitle gets it just right: you can “create your own tiny living world.” Calvo’s how-to covers miniature garden accessories, scaled design basics, patios and pathways, plants for the miniature garden, samples of miniature garden projects, and maintenance. Full-color photos throughout and detailed charts that categorize trees, shrubs, and miniature bedding plants by sun and shade and outdoor and indoor light levels provide adventurous gardening enthusiasts with technical know-how, tool tips (use a dinner fork as a rake), and creative ideas. Hardly child’s play, gardening in miniature is as challenging as working with a full-scale garden design and encompasses questions of proportion and scale, maintenance and sustainability. With listings of additional readings, metric conversions, and an index, Calvo’s guide will draw beginning and experienced practitioners to this whimsical hobby as art. --Whitney Scott

Review

Miniature Gardening is a magical option for the gardener with limited yard space. This book will position well anyone who wants to begin creating a little world filled with happy growing things.” —Publishers Weekly

“It will draw beginning and experienced practitioners to this whimsical hobby as art.” —Booklist

“Adorable. . . . A pleasant escape that allows [one] to not just imagine a carefree and fanciful world, but also to build and experience it, too.” —Country Living

“After reading this book, I came away even more inspired to create my own miniature garden. Beautiful examples of tiny gardens along with easy-to-follow directions. . . . are all included in this helpful book.” —Birds & Blooms

“A pleasant escape that allows [one] to not just imagine a carefree and fanciful world, but also to build and experience it, too.” —Philadelphia Inquirer

“The author lays out how we might invent Lilliputian versions of our own lives so that we might imagine inhabiting this or that little Eden of our own devising, lovely and perfect little places where all the things we love best in the world could be bound—perhaps even literally—in a nutshell.” —BookPage
