Mulberry Miniatures has Perfection Greenhouse in New Washington Ohio as a fantastic grower. Look for Mulberry Miniature plants at your favorite retailer.

Halloween, is my second favorite holiday of the year, as it is with most people. This group of miniatures were chosen for their extra dark or white appearance and look their best with the GeorgetownUSA ( line of halloween garden accessories. A partial selection is photographed in the following entries. All appreciate as much sun as you can give them in the fall and the following months.

Plants like, “Chocolate Sedge” and “WhiteStar Carpet” are borrowed from "Hardy Shade" and adapt to the higher light conditions of major of the plants which come from the "Tropical Summer" collection.

For southeastern gardeners, these plants will most likely be winter annuals, as they will have a tough time during the summer humidity, but you may have some surprising successes. Only the faeries will tell. Northern Gardeners, these plants will grow great in sunny, cold, drafty windows for the winter months, to be placed outside for growing season, even before your frost-free date. Fertilize monthly with an organic fertilizer to keep plants toned up.
