How to Plant a Moon Garden


I love the idea of a Moon Garden. Basically, it's a small garden featuring night-bloomers like moonflowers and angels' trumpets. A lot of these types of plants are white and tend to glow in the moonlight creating a spectacular night-time effect.

Also, many night-bloomers are night fragrant. Not only does this add to the Moon Garden's unique characteristics that separate it from your day garden, but it also attracts plenty of beautiful night pollinators.

An example of a Moon Garden and some of the plants I would feature in my own:
