    I agree with Randy. I just implemented Fairy Garden classes at my greenhouse, and now WM and Engelmann are going to shoot me in the foot. What happened to supporting the local businesses?

    I think it's a great way to introduce 'non gardeners' to gardening, get them hooked on the hobby and then they will find their way to the IGC's.

    I agree with Deb – this kind of exposure for this product can only help IGC's that produce fairy gardens. The introduction of this concept to the mass market can trigger a huge ripple effect for IGC's around the country. These are not the highly customized gardens you see in IGC's, however they are catchy. Walmart can never compete with IGC's as far as plant maintenance and display either.
