Inspiration for a Cottage Fairy Garden

Fairy Garden Container

This adorable fairy garden, complete with mushroom cottage, is nestled in a magical corner at UT Gardens in Knoxville, Tennessee.

Blue Glazed Container

The fairy garden starts with a shallow blue glazed container. Other hardscapes include a tiny fence and the mushroom cottage.

Miniature Landscape Design

A dwarf spruce tree provides shade for the mushroom cottage, while miniature stonecrop and miniature daisies round out the home-framing landscape design.

Fairy Garden Path

A path of small, flat stones leads from the cottage door.

Succulent Shrubs

Spiderweb hens and chicks, a delightfully small succulent with leaves connected by web-like filament, serve as miniature shrubs in the fairy cottage's landscape design.
