Please continue on for my thoughts on this subject.

This is the book I first read about Fairy Gardening.  It is full of so much useful information and ideas.  Yes, there are a lot of books around about this fascinating hobby.  And, over time, I will read a lot of them – because I keep getting deeper into this unique world.  But, Fairy Gardening:  Creating Your Own Magical Miniature Garden is an excellent place to start.

It is slightly older, so it might not be available everywhere but a good place to at least start is always Amazon.com – I have rarely found that I am not at least directed somewhere else if they do not have an item.

On the other hand, you could ask at your local library.  Sometimes it’s a definite advantage to see a book like this before you purchase.

I highly recommend it.  I doubt you’ll be disappointed and will probably use it as a guide for years to come.
