Caring for your Fairy Garden is very similar to caring for your outdoor garden, but on a much smaller scale. The fairies like it this way as it leaves more time for mischief!
During warmer times of the year, your Fairy Garden may be placed outside. Fairies love fresh air, but these dainty creatures do not care for cold, so be sure to watch the weather and move your garden inside if frost or freezing temperatures are predicted. During cooler times, your Fairy Garden will make a lovely house planter. Plus, fairies tend to make perfect houseguests since they are seldom seen and very quiet!
Use a watering can with a breaker to gently water your tiny plants and fertilize your Fairy Flowers® with a standard liquid fertilizer once a month.
As your plants grow, you may want to trim them. If so, just remember not to cut more than half of each Fairy Flower® back at one time.
Fertilizing Your Fairy Garden
An important part of maintaining your fairy garden is feeding it. This step is especially important if your fairy garden is in a container. Our recommendation is to use a liquid feed at full strength at least once a month. You could also use a diluted feed every week if that’s easier to remember. We love using liquid kelp, any brand will do, simply follow the directions on the package.
If your fairy garden is mostly filled with succulents, your feeding requirements will be lower. Only feed every other month or every third month. Succulents naturally do well with less water and less nutrition.
Fertilizing your fairy garden is especially important if you have flowering plants. The extra nourishment will keep them blooming as long as possible. More flowers make for happier fairies, so keep that garden fed!
