..use large planters,wheelbarrows,boxes,watering cans,tiny plot of land where a slab used to be...?

More......................if you go in the 1 shops you can get little birdhouses..all styles so you could do them up with paint,tiles,thatch,lots of keyring sized items from souvenier shops and charity shops can be used,fishtank walls and bridges,ornamental tanks,old cars,bikes would look good as well as the 12th scale stashes you don't use maybe...worth a go......if i had a garden i would definately have a couple going on..

Super little gardens and I love the fact real plants can be used
Have not worked out how to copy and paste on my tablet, but there are some specialist suppliers on the Internet that do some lovely items for faerie gardens. One is called "exclusively for you" and another one to look at is "obsession with butterflies"

Keep smilin
