When I met Denise English from Eco Personal Garden at the Independent Garden Center Show in Chicago and she had such passion about a creative product idea she had – making a pre-made broken pot fairy garden container based on the big fairy-garden trend of breaking apart clay pots and reassembling them in artistic designs, I knew I had to show you her cool products. The Eco Personal Garden team uses a molding process and makes several types of fun and creative fairy garden containers. Right now that includes a broken pot, an acorn, and a walnut utilizing little pockets within the container to create your fairy magic. Last season I created a nifty Halloween Broken Pot Container Fairy Garden using a bright orange broken pot, and you can see how the acorn (above) and spring broken pot turned out (below).
How to Create a Pocket Container Garden
- Drainage holes are in the containers, however, if you want a few extra drainage holes you will need to drill them yourself with a drill and drill-bit
- Place potting soil in the bottom of each pocket within the garden container
- Add plants, putting the tall plants in back and the groundcovers in front.
- Focal point works best in the front bottom pocket, although this is your creative adventure – so let your creativity take over
- Water regularly.
If you want to get your own super cool pocket container to get started container gardening for the season, I recommend reaching out to Planters Palette in Winfield, Illinois for some fairy supplies. They have camping fairies, garden fairies, and flying fairies – ALL the fairies. To order the creative containers go to Denise’s online Eco Personal Garden store – LINK HERE.
