This book is worth it just for the pictures alone. Each page is filled with beautiful mini-gardens that are inspiring and cute. The level of detail that was taken to design each garden was truly amazing. The author does a very good job of providing guidance on how to create gardens in small scale. She offers advice on selecting the right plants, watering requirements, and how to decorate your garden with miniature furniture and props. Unlike a terrarium, most of the gardens in her open-air making them easier to build and maintain.
I highly recommend this book for yourself or as a gift for a fellow gardener. I think you will get lots of enjoyment from it.
