Teacup Fairy Garden

Summer might be over for another year, but that doesn’t mean you need to put away the gardening gloves. These adorable mini-indoor gardens are a great way to brighten up a bedroom, bathroom, or give to someone as a present. And if you’re lucky, a fairy might decide to move in!

What you’ll need:Tea cup with mini garden

• Mismatched, thrifted teacups and saucers – the brighter, the better
• Gardening gloves
• A small trowel (if you don’t have one, you can use a spoon, but wash it thoroughly afterwards)
• 1-2kg bag of cactus & succulent potting mix
• Small succulents or cacti
• Small pebbles or gravel, cleaned
• Fairy garden miniatures

How to…

Step 1: Clean and dry your teacup or teacups if making more than one

Step 2: Put a fine layer of pebbles at the bottom of the cup, so the soil can drain properly

Step 3: Fill the teacup with potting mix, to just underneath the brim, leaving a hole big enough for your plant to go in

Step 4: Carefully put your plant into the hole, and press some more soil around the edge of the plant so it stays upright

Step 5: Arrange your fairy garden miniatures around the rest of the teacup
