KPBS Presents Season 7 of A GROWING PASSION With 6 Episodes

Miniature gardens are the rage - from railroad gardens to fairy gardens, traditional Asian art gardens, to tiny gardens that surround buildings constructed from Legos!

There is a miniature garden for everyone, whether young or simply young at heart.

Good Things Come in Small Packages

Good things come in small packages! Tiny gardens encompass all the elements of a full-size garden just on a much tinier scale. These exquisite creations are not only a popular hobby but a serious art form. Find out how tiny gardens come to life and the meticulous planning and design behind them.

On this episode, we visit a range of miniature gardens to enjoy their whimsy as we discover how they are carefully designed and meticulously constructed.

Host Nan Sterman tries her hand at making miniature gardens, too!
