The little garden above, Angela's garden, was planted in a 12" diameter basket with a plastic liner that I had left over from last year. Make sure whatever you use to plant in has drainage holes in the bottom. You want to find low and slow growing plants; here I used Elfin thyme (what a delightful name!), Irish moss, speedwell (a creeping form of Veronica) and a polka-dot plant. They were all available at my local nursery; look for the area that has ground covers.
The twig bench, watering can, and shepherd's hook came from Winter Greenhouse (http://miniature-gardening.com/). They also have a large selection of plants suitable for miniature gardening.
