It depends on what you mean by "miniature". Did you have a particular scale in mind? You might start by checking out model train books for ideas, since model train stuff comes in scales ranging from 1:24 to 1:160.

You will find a book published in 1999, MAKING MINIATURE GARDENS by Freida Gray very helpful. She does a nice job of explaining details of flower making and miniature garden construction. Have fun!

You could make a terrarium with indoor plants plant them in a pretty jug...... of course bonsai is an option ..... :) .....

I used tiny baby ferns, little bits of small mosses ect planted inside of clear X-mass balls.
