When you go to plant a fairy garden, there are some essential components.


Make sure your container garden has excellent drainage first. Make sure the plants will have sufficient drainage if you’re using a container like a beautiful basket. especially in the upcoming erratic autumnal weeks.


For your plants, make sure the soil is of high quality. You should use high-quality potting soil, just like with any potted plants and container gardens. Miracle Grow potting soil is a favorite of mine.


Finally, pick your plants and flowers wisely. Because they are robust plants with vibrant blossoms, mums (Chrysanthemum) are a favorite fall flower in the Midwest. Even some mum varieties will return the next year. Check out this list of fairy garden plants and flowers for ideas if you’re planting early in the season.
