Learn how to garden in miniature

Seattle-area gardener and author Janit Calvo advises starting small and staying small.

Calvo, the author of “Gardening in Miniature: Create Your Own Tiny Living World,” will demonstrate her miniature garden techniques and sign her book from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday at J. Matheson Gifts, Kitchen and Gourmet in Everett.

Calvo describes her art as a cross between gardening and crafting. The book includes tips for creating your own miniature living scenes, the types of plants that work best and accessories to complete your creation.
