What Makes this Book Different from Other Miniature Garden Books?
Anne of Green Gardens: Miniature Gardening was written using my knowledge as a horticulturalist and my experiences designing and planting my very own miniature gardens.
I’ve taken the guess work out of the process and written a step-by-step gardening guidebook complete with photos and sketches to inspire you along the way.
Find Tips on How to:
- Choose a miniature garden theme
- Sketch your garden design
- Select the plants for your garden
- Correctly plant the plants in your garden
- Choose fun accessories
- Care for your miniature garden
Miniature Gardens Aren't Just for the Fairies!
You can create one of the gardens from the concept sketches or photos or come up with your own garden theme. The possibilities are as endless as your imagination!
But I Don’t Have a Green Thumb!
Miniature gardening is a hobby where everyone can be successful! I've demystified one of the reasons gardeners often kill plants and revealed how to prevent it. In fact, this book may give you several “aha!” moments and lead you down the pathway towards a green thumb.
Pictures! Tell Me About the Pictures!
The book will be beautifully illustrated with full color photographs of some of my own gardens as well as gardens of my friends. I've also included a plant guide with photos of recommended plants.

Risks and challenges
This is my first Kickstarter. The book is complete so my biggest challenge will be marketing it. I plan to promote the book on my website, my Facebook page and at local farmers markets, garden shows and garden clubs. I’m also friends with several independent garden center owners who have indicated interest in the book.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
