Fairy tale garden ideas

lavender_lass(4b)August 18, 2009

I was looking for ideas for fairy gardens and found this idea.

Jack and the Beanstalk was represented by planting climbing beans on four foot tall, thin bamboo poles (making a narrow teepee, so when they grew together, the beans would look like one stalk) with a little house at the bottom, a small figure "Jack" climbing the pole beans and a larger "Giant" figure at the top.

I don't remember which site this was on, but I thought it was a great idea to bring some "boy ideas" into the garden. I've been planning a fairy garden for my nieces, but I think some clever ideas like this might entice my nephews to get more involved.

Does anyone else have some good ideas for fairy tale gardens? I'm interested in anything for boys, girls, or both, but I don't want anything too elaborate. I'm still a beginner gardener :)

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

I wanted to start planting my garden and was checking back on some of the responses I had received....but they're all missing!

I know one was about leprechauns. If anyone has any great ideas, or can remember the other ones, please let me know. I'm still looking for great "boy ideas" and girls too, for the garden :)
