In The Garden – How To Make a Terrarium

Photobucket

Hi There,
 
This morning I woke up early so I could do some design work before my babies woke. I don’t usually do this but the forecast promised beautiful weather and I didn’t want to miss it.
 
Once I had the kids up, dressed and fed we headed to the beach for a quick play in the sand and pre nap snacks.
Once home I popped both boys into bed checked and replied to emails did a little more design work.
 
Then headed out to the garden.
 
I have been meaning to make a terrarium for a while now and today was finally the day.
 
You can make a terrarium in almost anything. I chose a little vase I bought from the cutest little home wares and cute kiddy things shop in Cronulla called Char Bella.
 
What you need.
Container, pebbles, potting mix, plant.
 
First line the bottom of the container with a small amount of pebbles. This allows for good drainage. Then add a good organic potting mix before placing your plant inside the container.
Finally top with more pebbles, ornaments or anything you like and volia you have a cute little Terrarium.
This will not last forever and if you want the plant to survive you will eventually 
need to re pot it.
Usually 4-6 weeks is a good time frame.
