The terrarium craze started picking up steam several years ago and is now THE THING in container gardening. How fabulous it is to see this art form coming back with a fresh spin. Last month’s NW Flower and Garden Show was an indicator that the trend towards displaying with vintage and found objects has merged with interior plantings to great effect. Display after display created by nurseries and other retailers, florists and in the container gardens, showcased an inventiveness and attention to detail that delighted attendees. Running away with all the awards were the container garden vignettes featuring repurposed vessels and heavenly terrariums.
Here are some examples from the NW Flower & Garden Show that are sure to whet your appetite for both vintage shopping and building your own unique terrarium. What’s old is new again, as they say.
