Step into the garden, into the blooms, come closer and find fairy rooms.
You may just get a fleeting glimpse, of golden wings and tiny footprints.
Fairy dust has a twinkling sound, catch it as it flutters down.
For gardens whether large or small, are not quite what they seem at all.
For centuries, the world has been fascinated with the idea that “fairies and elves” live among us and have the power to spread magic and mischief throughout our homes and gardens.
While the existence of fairies is up to your own imagination, adding fairies to your garden is a way to participate in this centuries old tradition. It never hurts to please the fairies and sprites in order to gain their favor.

Fairy gardens are becoming increasingly popular in the home garden. Tonkadale is one of the few places where you can shop for Fairy Garden Accessories to accompany them.
Fairy Gardens are miniature landscapes created using small-scale plants and accessories. These little scenes create a sense of magic and whimsy, and are essential for attracting those little elusive fairies to your home and garden.
An outdoor fairy garden can be as small or large as your area allows. Choose a spot under a hosta leaf, under a tree in a shady spot, or in your rose garden. Add a bench, a tiny birdhouse, and a birdbath and you have a secluded place for fairies to linger. If you have room, add a path that leads to a lighted house complete with a picket fence. Plant small terrarium sized plants like baby tears or ivies. Hang a tire swing on a nearby branch to entice an entire fairy family to move in! The possibilities are endless!!
Fairy Garden Folklore
Common Celtic belief is that fairies were driven away by humans to live in the other world. However, many fairies have chosen to stay among us. They wear flowers for clothes which makes them hard to find. They are said to have magical powers, are very shy, and tend to be a little mischievous. Fairies like to play tricks; they move things around in the garden and hide things just for their own amusement! They love to dance and if you look closely, you may see them dancing in the dark with the fireflies. While they make their homes in the holes of trees, fallen logs, and mossy hillsides, they are never ones to turn down a ready-made home. Fairies would rather play than work; a fairy house and a garden is always appreciated.
