For all you creative folks out there…what better way to own your own living piece of art than to design and hand build your own custom terrarium!  Down To Earth has a generous selection of supplies including glass containers of many shapes and sizes, stones, pebbles, and glass, and darling miniature indoor plants to make your own idea come to life.

In this video, we show the home gardener how to build a self-contained, miniaturized garden in a gorgeous Spanish glass pear. Learn which soils work best in a closed environment, how to choose plants and what makes a terrarium personal.

The possibilities are endless.  Make a seasonal terrarium, go whimsical, purely botanical, color coordinated…you name it!  A thoughtful, hand crafted terrarium also makes a fantastic gift for a plant lover in your life.
