Gardening Talk on Fairy Gardens

This is the fifth installment of McNally Robinson Booksellers and the Prairie Garden Committee’s 2013 series of Gardening Information Talks. 

Carla Hrycyna, president and co-owner of St. Mary’s Nursery and Garden Centre, has a zeal for designing landscapes, growing plants and helping others create a beautiful environment. She believes creativity begins at the garden centre and carries into the customer’s home and garden.

Fairy Gardening is a current gardening project that is catching people’s interest. Carla will show how to design a tiny landscape fit for fairy dwellers. She will suggest interesting containers and found items, as well as the plants, that would make a perfect miniature dwelling place for little folk. It will be fun!
