SUMMER 2018 ANNOUNCEMENT. TO ALL RETAILERS AND GROWERS:
Mulberry Miniatures has found a new a new production grower. Look for Mulberry Miniature plants at your favorite retailer.

These hardy perennial miniatures prefer the outdoors 365 days a year and require a cold winter resting period of least 45 degrees for several weeks to initiate next year’s flowers. If you can grow hosta in your area - you will be able to grow these just fine. (By the way, mini hostas are coming soon!)

There is only 1 dwarf hardy trees in this selection.
Hardy miniature tree in the "Fairy Garden Collection" are available from Stanley & Sons Nursery found in many garden centers. If your local nursery does not carry these, please inform them where they can be purchased. These are true miniature trees & conifers. These beautiful are absolutely required for height in any mini landscape.

Most enjoy morning sun with afternoon shade though they’ll tolerate a touch of afternoon sun, if filtered. Only a few plants thrive in full shade, mostly the ferns. As a general rule: the more sun they get, the more water they want. Many are deer resistant.

Growing them in containers near the house discourages nibbling as well. Mini landscaping can be done in most any container. Partially rotted logs and stumps, wooden boxes, hypertufa and ceramic containers, as long as they are frostproof, make wonderful choices.

Here are a few popular vessels for making “the secret garden,” which faeries prefer!
