Plants have always served and are one of the best ways to decorate the interior and revitalize the home and garden. For decoration, you can not only use individual flowers, but also make an entire composition out of them, creating your own mini-garden.
Before you start creating such a garden, you need to be inspired by some kind of initial idea. Perhaps the garden will be arranged in the form of tiers and lined with beautiful pebbles. Perhaps, in addition to plants, interior decorations (a model of a house or a castle) will also participate in the decoration. Or the decor with the help of multi-colored stones will highlight small trees. Here you need to use your wildest fantasies - even broken pots will be an excellent tool for design development.
The mini-garden is different from ordinary window flowers, and from the garden. You can highlight such features:
This work is created mainly at the expense of improvised means, and to make it is not as difficult as it seems. Important to have a good mood, thanks to which the imagination will quickly tell you how to turn unnecessary things at first glance into a real homework.
As already mentioned, before creating a garden, you need to decide what concept the future composition will have. It is necessary to proceed from the available means and characteristics of plants. It is better to decide in advance exactly where the miniature garden will be located. Then it is easier to choose which flowers will be included in the composition - shade-loving or vice versa, in need of light, high or low, etc. When it comes to home use of a future work, you need to take into account the interior of the room - which tones prevail, what kind of lighting, features of the room, furniture, etc.
To kindergarten organically fit into the interior, you need to think carefully about its plot. The number of ideas is unlimited, and here are just a few of them:
The easiest way to get inspired is to see the garden live at exhibitions, in the store or at a party. Photos of finished compositions are equally effective. You can take all the best examples as a basis and create your own masterpiece. Also a good source of inspiration and ideas is a master class of professional florists. Of course, you can come up with your own unique version - this will work even more interesting.
To get started, it is important to choose the basis of the garden - the container in which it will be placed. For these purposes, almost any pot, bathtub, old sink and many other improvised tools will do. Important, so that the vessel is high enough - better from 20-30 cm and wide as much as required. Typically, gardens are performed on a wide horizontal surface, so the width of the container is of great importance.
The shape of the container can be any - round, oval, square, curved, etc. Ceramic products of warm tones (like usual flower pots) will organically fit into the design. but the choice of color and material is more a matter of taste. The only main requirement is the presence of holes to drain excess water.
The bottom of the container is best decorated with pebbles and small gravel or other stonesto provide drainage. Outside, the container can be beautifully decorated with colored stones, shells - here again fantasy comes into force. First, a solution is made from equal proportions of sand and cement, to which water is added until a pasty mass is obtained. The freshly prepared mixture is gently spread on the edges of the container, then the decoration elements are stuck and left to dry.
An interesting option is when a porous stone is used as a containerthat can pass moisture - for example, limestone, tuff, shell rock. Usually they are used in suburban areas. Floral arrangements in stones look more natural and interesting.
And perhaps the most original option is a kindergarten in a bowl (small capacity). This variety will appeal to fans of minimalism. You can plant the smallest plants, and decorate the elements of small details (for example, a small house with a birdhouse).
Perhaps the main criterion in the selection of plants for the future composition is not too rapid flower growth. The fact is that replanting plants, cutting off excess greens is better not too often, otherwise it harms both the appearance of the garden and its inhabitants themselves. It is also worth considering that if you decorate the composition with stones, then the roots of the plants must be unpretentious and strong enough to break through them.
Of course, an important factor is the decorative value of the plant, that is, how beautiful it will look in a pot. Here are some good tricks you need to know:
The rules for composing a flower arrangement are related to the design features of the kindergarten. The main goal is to combine flowers and emphasize the dignity of each of them. Florists recommend proceeding from such general principles:
Decorative elements of the garden can be very diverse. They should not only harmoniously fit into the composition, but also advantageously emphasize the dignity of plants, as well as create a pleasant mood among the contemplators. A variety of means can be used:
There can be a lot of ideas. When you have chosen the necessary decorations, it is important to correctly enter them into the design, and in the case of figures - to strengthen in the ground. You can just dig it in, or you can pre-attach them to a platform (for example, a house), which you can strengthen in the ground.
It is better to place the composition in the largest room in the house. As for the garden plot, it’s better to place the mini-garden on the main place - often it is located on the main road on the way to the house. If there are several pots with gardens, you can put them right around the perimeter, or put in a row so that everyone is clearly visible from the main road. It is also important to consider which plants will grow - light or shade-loving.
A kindergarten requires more attention than a regular potted plant. If unpretentious plants (cacti, succulents) are mainly planted, then there are no special recommendations for care. If there are more demanding (decorative roses), then you need to carefully monitor the irrigation regime. When they fade, you need to remove the fallen petals, dig up the wilted plants and see if neighboring bushes interfere with each other. Perhaps some of them are better to plant.
Specific recommendations for the maintenance of a miniature garden can be determined based on the type of plants that live in it.
It is very important to monitor the capacity - it can get wet due to watering, and undergo wear. It is better to replace it in time when it becomes necessary.
Growing plants in kindergartens has become one of the most widespread trends in home floristry. This is not only a great option for creating design in the house and on the garden plot, but also a great hobby, uplifting and allowing you to enjoy your own creativity.
