The idea of growing plants in containers is certainly not a new one. Sea travellers in the 1700's would use sealed transparent cases to transport plants on long journeys by sea. Merchants would import ferns, orchids and exotic plants from warmer areas in the world. They were an effective way of controlling temperature and moisture levels thus keeping the plants alive.
Today, terrariums are the perfect type of garden for the apartment or city dweller starved of nature and lacking space, time or patience for maintenance. A terrarium is a miniature landscape with small plants, rocks, soil, moss all within a clear glass container. These tiny gardens often simulate real life landscapes. This book will guide you step-by-step through the process of putting together your own beautiful living sculpture that can be adored all year round, whatever the weather outside.
