EXPERT TIP: In Containers with no holes, like a birdbath, make sure to add a layer of pea gravel at the bottom to give a place for extra water to go to help avoid overwatering. This will help keep your container from getting overwatered and keep your plants happy and healthy.

EXPERT TIP: Fairy Gardens can also be play gardens. They are great to have in the garden to give the kids a place to call their own where they can get their hands dirty and play with as they please. We love this garden's farm theme.
