World’s Smallest Garden Center Celebrates Huge Miniature Garden Trend

The world’s smallest retail nursery, Two Green Thumbs Miniature Garden Center, turns 10 years old this month and is leading the brand new miniature garden hobby into the most popular trend to hit the garden industry in years. Industry professionals, garden center owners and growers are quickly discovering this huge surge in interest in the smallest of plants and the tiniest of gardens.

Seattle, WA, November 09, 2011 --( “Miniature gardening is the perfect blend of the two most popular hobbies in the world: gardening and miniatures. There is nothing else like it,” says Janit Calvo, founder of Two Green Thumbs.

The Two Green Thumbs Miniature Garden Center was formed in 2001 after discovering that the art of gardening small was just too rich of an idea to let go. The miniature garden hobby is not new, but their approach to it is. With the power and reach of the Internet, Two Green Thumbs has supplied quality products and services to new hobbyists, crafters and gardeners throughout the world, and the trend shows no signs of stopping.

These miniature, magical gardens are made of slow-growing plants that are “dwarf” and “miniature,” terms that describe the growth rate of the plant. The plants are combined with miniature accessories and in-scale patios to make real, living mini garden scenes - that can last for years in a container with minimal care. When planted correctly, the plants and trees stay in scale with each other to create a sustainable, true garden in miniature.

Two Green Thumbs spent years spreading the idea through garden shows, exhibits, demonstrations and clubs all over Washington State. The online store was the first store to bring the complete idea to the consumer and, since then, it has inspired other people to start their own miniature garden businesses using the same model. Now, nurseries and garden centers are including this new level of gardening into their own stores.

“This miniature and fairy garden trend is about to explode. You’ll see a lot more options this holiday season and next spring, when the planting season opens up.” - Janit Calvo

The company’s inimitable Mini Garden Guru blog and the Mini Garden Gazette newsletter are deeply saturated with all things miniature garden, and are sent all over the world, inspiring thousands to garden small. The company’s unique Facebook fan page is exclusively their own, and reports daily on the new trend. Social media network connections like Twitter, Flickr and Etsy have helped reach thousands of crafters and gardeners, and have spread the word so much that the trend is snowballing.

“There is no limit what can be done: large, small, gifts, parties, or create your own miniature empire in your backyard, it is possible on any budget. Now everyone can have a garden.” - Janit Calvo
