Taking part inÂ a workshop with London Terrariums was one of the best unexpected things I’ve ever taken part in.
In less than half an hour I was able to make the cutest little terrarium to hang in my home so I was keen to share the wisdom with my lovely readers… aka you 😉
It’s really easy, but first you’ll need a glass globe, soil and small plants and stones to hand. Water came in very handy too, especially in a spray bottle.
- Add a thin layer of stones to the bottom of your glass base. This is to help drainage to stop you from over-watering the plants.
- Then add a thick layer of fresh soil and spray some water on it.
- Choose your plants; a variety of small and large ones will give it a more interesting look in my opinion.
- The largest plants will probably need planting so ensure to make a hole for the roots, whilst the littlest ones can be simply pressed into place on top of the soil.
- Add stones and moss to decorate and you’re done!
I can imagine that making one of these DIY would mean putting it in a jam jar and hanging it up with a rope. I think I would struggle though if I didn’t go on the workshop because I’d simply not know where to begin…
London Terrariums provided everything I needed andÂ were clearly experts on plant biology. I’d definitely recommend attending one of their workshops. AsÂ I was told that the bigger you go the more fun it gets, I’m definitely trying that out!
