Make A Hobbit Garden In A Flowerpot


Making a fairy garden or a hobbit house in a garden planter is fun, magical, and easy to do.  We found this at and had to share.

Start by collecting all  items that will be used in the hobbit house pot.  Use our color  bowl planter which comes in many bright beautiful colors. (shown)Get gravel, moss, soil, grass, trees and the fun stuff like a hobbit door, window, chimney, and accessories.  You will need scissors, clippers, hot glue gun, watering can and small brush along with a ton of imagination!

Start by putting a pea sized pebbles in the bottom of the pot to help with drainage. Place the sheet moss over the gravel to help with filtration and to keep the soil from sinking to the bottom.  You will use extra moss to cover the top of your plants.

Remove 2 small plants from nursery pots and place the plant aside for now.  Glue the bottom of the pot and secure the door and window. Place these aside to dry.

Pull the pot with potting soil and shape it so you have a hill on one side of the pot and a flat surface on the other.  Add your tree to the left side of your hill, right on the edge of your pot.  Now add the door at the base of tree.  Then the window and then grass above the window.

Lastly fill in the gaps using miniature plants.  Fill in with more soil where needed.  Add your miniature furniture, mailbox and garden bench.  This is where you can get super creative!
