Pirate Fairy Garden DIY Shopping List
Hello Fairy Lovers!
My Pirate Garden is about 3 years old and every year I change it up with new plants, ornaments, shells, and sand etc… I have been asked several times what I use in the garden so I have decided to create a list of everything in the garden to make it easy for you to re-create! So, let’s get started Matey!
This is what I used as we had an old fire pit and it works so well for a 360-degree viewing of the garden. I also purchased a new one for my other fairy garden.
It is important to use quality potting soil and there are many good ones to choose from. I happen to like the organic soil as I have had super results with it.
For drainage, it is best to place gravel at the bottom -this is what works for me the best. Be sure to drill drainage holes in the bottom of your container.
In your pirate garden, it is important to have a hidden cave to put the jewels and treasures from the pirates (I purchased extra jewels to place in the cave-see below)
Pirate gardens are not complete without a stolen treasure chest-I use one or two every year!
This pirate ship is the focal point of the pirate fairy garden-and you can choose from so many different styles HERE
My pirate garden is an island with an abandoned pirate ship so I have a cannon on the shore for protection from the other pirates looking for all my treasures.
I placed the skull on the opposite side of the garden hidden in plants to create mystery.
I place the pirate skull in the middle of the plants to give the feeling of a deserted island.
I think more than one pirate chest in the garden gives it more of the pirate feel!
The First Mate also got marooned on the island with the Pirate Captain-I placed him in the plants also to add a bit of interest. It is always fun when you can discover new items hidden in the garden.
Every pirate garden needs a Pirate Captain and I think this one is fantastic.
Mermaids are said to be good luck for sailors-she will sit patiently in the waters of your pirate garden.
This is the sand used to create the water effect-I like the variegated colors to give it depth.
White sand is used at the edge of the blue sand (water) to create a sea foam effect-it is very beautiful.
I have one of these in my pirate garden and I love it, adds a touch of whimsy.
These are jewels that I place in the cave and also sprinkled around the garden-adds to the hidden treasure intrigue.
This is always a great touch to add a variety of sea shells, gives it more interest.
Shells are a must on an island-add the shells on the beach or in the white seafoam of the water.
These plants would look amazing to give any garden a pop of color! Wish I had seen these for my pirate garden.
I like this assortment due to the fact it has a tropical feel to them-like a tropical island. The taller plants would look great by the cave.
I bought a variety of plants-I made my garden a shade garden so these are the types I used.
