I've been scoping out Terrariums........I have a fascination for them but the first one I found at Longwood Gardens was just over $200 and I wasn't prepared to pay that kind of price. I've been looking here and there on line and found a few that I like.
(I am including links, but I am not advertising nor am I compensated for them)
This Terrarium is described as an
English Classic Tabletop
I found it on ($43) Amazon
This one is similar to the one above except
it has a functional roof top to open for
ventilation, which is important when
growing live plants but is considerably
more money ($168) Wardian Style
Terrariums at ($139.99 for two)
($69.99) and here
For the do-it yourselfer I found this
example at Country Living Magazine
it is a terrarium made using pre-made
What I really want is one that has it's
but after looking around
I've realized I'm going to have to be
prepared to pay a lot more money!
So for now........
I found this one while shopping at a
department store. It has no glass- so I
call it a Terrarium loosely but I was
attracted to it and ended up buying it.
(Sale price $38.49) Terrarium at Kohls
I lucked out on a Saturday with one of
their specials and got it at 50% off plus
a 20% coupon that brought it down to
For now I will have to be content with a
I ended up using it as a decortive
element on this table.
It only has faux plants in it. To be
a true terrarium it would have to
have some sort of waterproofing and
it would need to be enclosed to provide
a greenhouse like environment.
I love interior decorating and during
the winter months it occupies my
mind as much as gardening does
during the spring and summer.
I added this garden Angel and
moss to blanket the bottom.
I guess they say we are "nesting"
at this time of year. Even though this
has been a very mild winter we do tend
to be indoors much more than we want
to have to be so you might as well find
a way to make it more cozy and enjoyable!
So this is what I do to ward off
the winter blues....what are you
