Home garden in a mini-DIY version, i.e. do it yourself

garden in the dish

The inspiration to make a mini garden in the vessel was undoubtedly Alina - the author of the DesignYouLife blog, who recently wrote about creative gardens that is flowers in the apartment - thank you for the inspiration!

While browsing the Internet on Saturday, the decision was made - I will have my own little garden!
A plan came to my mind quickly:

1. Shopping at NOMI

I was probably lucky - although in the "Outdoor garden" section most of the flowers looked long forgotten, at the checkout line there was a small surprise waiting for me in the form of a promotion for cacti and succulents - I couldn't find a better one:






In addition to the plants, I also need pebbles - which are perfect for the bottom of the vessel and for covering the ground on top, which will not only serve as decorative, but will also keep the ground moist for longer. 2 kg of white pebbles - about 5 zlotys.

The most important thing is not to be missed - a little bit of soil - that has been waiting for me in the basement since last season.
Garbage bags will also be useful - to protect the table on which I will arrange my garden.


2. Vessel

Its purchase turned out to be the most difficult. I was looking for a nice, shallow pot or glass bowl. Unfortunately, I didn't find anything interesting in the aforementioned Nomi or Home & You, but the Almi Decor store came to my aid, where I bought a great glass for PLN 34,90.


3. Well then to work:
I poured a layer of white pebbles on the bottom:

The next layer is earth:


And the flowers - I took them out of the pots, and if it was necessary, I removed the excess soil and replanted them into a new vessel:









At the end I covered everything with a layer of white pebbles:



And my home garden is ready!




And how do you like it? I'm bursting with pride!
