BRO Holiday Gift Guide: Fairy Gardens @ Urban Roots

For the gardener in your life, there’s a fun new trend that can keep his or her green thumb happy throughout the year. It’s a wee garden, or a fairy garden, that takes all of the wonderful aspects of gardening, and encapsulates them into miniature settings that resemble their larger counterparts. You can either purchase the gardens fully assembled (tiny plants and all), or piece by piece until satisfaction is reached. The sets and accessories are available at Urban Roots Community Garden Center.

The Wildewood and Vine Arbor sets are just two choices to pick from. Each comes will all of the components to grow an itsy bitsy garden that can be placed on a table or in a window. Some sets have small wheelbarrows and garden tools, while others have trellises, watering cans and benches. Don’t be surprised if a mushroom spore takes root and pops up over night. This is a great family project too – something that the kids will find fascinating. The decorations are limited only by the imagination. Sold separately is a small shed that has a green roof on top where you can grow additional greens. This is a very thoughtful gift idea for anyone who enjoys the art of gardening.


The miniature garden set kits run around $40, and there are plenty of accessories to purchase on top of that, including the tiny plants.

Adjoining Urban Roots is Five Points Bakery, where you will find delicious coffee and Buffalo’s only ‘toast bar’. Located just down the street from Richmond Avenue, the bakery and the garden center have become one of the city’s most celebrated small business destinations.
