Create miniature landscapes for your home or office, or as unique gifts for loved ones

Terrariums offer the perfect green solution for the apartment or city dweller who is starved of nature but lacks space, time, or patience for outdoor projects. Now everyone can create a miniature landscape, all arranged within a clear glass container.

Miniscapes guides you step-by-step through the process of putting together your own beautiful living sculpture that can be adored all year round. It offers 16 innovative projects that cover four different biomes: Desert, Forest, Carnivorous, and Air plants. Each project can be adapted to use equipment you already have at home, tapping into the upcycled/recycled trend. It covers all the basics of soil and rocks, moss, tools, propagation, choosing your plants and containers, and assembling your tiny landscape. Terrariums bring people and nature together without even going outside.

CLEA CREGAN created Miniscapes, a terrarium-making business after she caught the terrarium bug when browsing through a flea market. Miniscapes continues to be at the forefront of the terrarium revival.
