These miniature gardens have been trending for the last few years and they are always in fashion. You will be creating your own little green decoration using some of your old teacups or teapots and then planting what you would like to grow.

Usually, in the teacup gardens, you will see people planting herbs or cactuses, mostly because they require less watering which doesn’t “interfere” with the decoration you have chosen to use.

Here you will find 20 miniature teacup gardens that might inspire you!

1. Cactus chic!

2. Cute fun

3. Hanging teacup
