Miniature garden designs in cups and even solar lamps are a new trend in container gardening.  The plants are easy to find in any garden centre, are cheap and easy to take care of requiring very little water and very occasional feeding.  Hester Macdonald from the Swiss Gardening school has been finding out more about these tiny designs ideas.

One of the things which can be difficult when you move to a new region is knowing what to do and when in the garden. The plants may be unfamiliar, the weather weird and you can’t ask your neighbours because they don’t speak the same language. Tara Lissner, Director of the Swiss Gardening School has advice to guide you through any questions you may have.
