We knew terrariums were going to be hot this year, so the Sun newspaper article and the episode on CBS Sunday Morning  last week featuring terrariums did not take us totally by surprise. A few of us were around last time, in the 70's when terrariums and sand art gardens were big.

At least four of us have been on the lookout for cool glass vessels for planting, our bonsai grower has been busy potting up miniature plants and the garden shop manager had stocked plenty of charcoal and moss. So we are ready now, and good thing, because we've received eight phone calls during a cold winter's day from people who are ready to plant up some of these fun mini-gardens.

One of our inspirations is a book by Tovah Martin titled The New Terrarium. The book features all kinds of ideas for growing and displaying gardens under glass.
If you are interested in learning more about terrariums, stop in anytime and talk to one of our enthusiasts, or join us on February 5th at 11:00 am for a workshop. Visit our website and click on Events for more information.
