Fairy gardening is a popular past time for many children, youth and adults. It is a great way to create a beautiful, creative masterpiece that is limited only by your imagination!
A sure way to attract fairies into your garden is to create a magical miniature fairy garden. Fairies are peaceful, yet mischievous magical folks that like to frolic and dance in the garden.
To design and plant a garden for fairies, begin by thinking small. You'll need a small container like a terrarium, box or basket; a selection of small plants that fairies like; and small ornaments and treasures to tempt and please the fairies.

Cyclamen is a lovely flowering plant appreciated for its habit of blooming in winter when flowers are so scarce. The plant develops from an underground corm, or tuber, similar to a bulb. The leaves are generally deep green with pale green markings, which nicely set off the pink, white or red blooms. Even when not in flower, the foliage, with its mottled markings, is interesting.
