The Miniature Garden Society

We’ve created the Clubhouse for the New Hobby….

Dig in. We’ve been waiting for you.

The Miniature Garden Society was created in 2015 for place where miniature gardeners can gather, and grow the new hobby together.

Explore this new hobby at your leisure…

Learn as you go. Pick up a project for the weekend, maybe longer. Relax and enjoy armchair miniature gardening, or get prepared for your next mini garden adventure!

Find the RIGHT answers…

We’ve done all the research for you. We’ve made the mistakes so you don’t have to. 

Eliminate the guesswork and get right to the plants and gardening advice that work for YOUR situation.

We’ve certainly learned a lot since our first Gardening in Miniature book, published in 2013…

“This Woman has the best ideas and her miniature gardens are by far the most realistic! She uses unique items and creations to create stunning and one of a kind art works. Watch her techniques for the most beautiful and lifelike mini gardens!!”
– Leslie Ann, Miniature Gardener

“I do want to say that of all of the sites on the web I’ve visited on the subject of miniature gardening, the content in the miniature garden society is pure gold.” – Liz, Miniature Gardener

Garden big, small, in-ground – or all of the above…

We’ve got you covered.

This exclusive community was built by the founder of the miniature garden hobby, Janit Calvo, and author of the two bestselling books on Gardening in Miniature.

Janit has been studying, growing and playing with this hobby, professionally, since 2001.

“I have to say that you are a fantastic source of
 accurate and
consumer-friendly advice for anyone wishing to pursue miniature
landscapes and fairy gardening as a hobby.”
– Ellen, Miniature Gardener

For people that understand your miniature garden needs – and your passion for gardening small.
