Broken pot fairy garden? Sometimes these pot plants are just so stubborn, that even after months of loving care, they will still survive for years. They’re a tough competitor and many will fight over just the smallest piece of dirt. You’ll know what I mean if you see those creeping around with a small hammer, just trying to get at that beautiful looking pot that is only 4 inches thick.
I think one of the best things about pot gardening is that it’s so versatile. In my area there is always a lot going on around me and as I try to limit my time working in the yard, I find that broken pot fairy gardens are what keep me from having to work so hard. Just to get those weeds out of the way, I can put up a quick little pruning, pull some unwanted weeds, then just let them grow. Then I can go do something else for awhile. It makes it a relaxing, low key exercise schedule.
So back to the original question, broken pot fairy gardens or containers? I actually use both for various reasons and the answer is both! I like to have both, for different reasons. For instance, I enjoy the challenge of trying to grow something in a limited space. Also, being able to use the same gardening tools, whether I’m working with small flower pots, broken pot fairy gardens, etc, is very helpful.
When planning a broken pot garden or container garden I actually use a Craft Drill/Soldering Iron. This makes it easy to join different materials together. It makes it much easier to create beautiful designs, shapes and crafts.
Now the question is, how to make your own pot fairy gardens or any other container garden using this type of tool and material. Well, there are a few things you need to consider, such as the size of your garden, and where it’s going to be placed. I tend to think of it more as a miniature gardening garden, so I tend to place it close to a window, or next to a patio to allow it all the sunlight it needs.
Once you have decided where it will be located and the size of your garden, the next step is to choose what type of pot or container to use. You might want to buy a few different pots or containers and combine their styles to make a unique design. A craft drill is perfect for this because you can drill into most materials. If you want a unique piece of art, then I recommend using a broken pot fairy.
Once you have decided on a pot and style to use, the next step is to choose what plants you are going to place in it. Some plants are very hearty, so don’t put too many of them in one pot. The same goes with the size of the pots, keep in mind that you are going to be using this to grow small plants, not large plants. Once the garden grows, you might find that you need to place more garden tools around your home to store them when they’re not being used.
I prefer using broken pots, because the material is cheap, easy to clean, and looks great. There are also many designs available if you’re trying to match a garden to your house. Just remember that if you make your own garden you are the one who has to live with it, not the other way around. The other nice thing about a garden is that you can always add more to it or take away from it. The more you add, the better your garden looks.
