National Garden Month

April is National Garden Month, a time to celebrate the joys of gardening and the many benefits it provides. Gardening offers numerous physical and mental health benefits. Research has shown that spending time in nature can lower stress levels and boost mood.

Miniature Garden

What is miniature gardening?

Miniature gardens are made of slow-growing plants, typically ones that are “dwarf” and “miniature.” These two terms describe the growth rate of the plant, not the mature size. “Dwarf” means the plant grows 1″ to 6″ per year. “Miniature” means the plant will grow less than 1″ per year.
