Care Guide

Australia’s climate is wonderful, but can be trying when it comes to your fairy garden inhabitants and accessories. Extreme heat and cold will affect these items over time and they must be cared for to protect them for many years to come.

Many of our products are made from resin and weather-resistant paint. However, even weather resistant paint cannot stand up to Australia’s hot sun and cold snaps long term! To protect the beautiful items, ensure the pieces are not permanently placed in full sun; and paint or spray the pieces every 6 – 12 months with colourless UV protectant or water based polyurethane varnish. It is advisable that in extreme weather conditions (such as High Summer, mid-Winter, storms) bring the fairy garden items inside or to a sheltered location out of the elements.

Remember that over time in your garden metal will rust and wood will rot. Often rust and wood weathering can add lovely character to the piece, but if this is not for you then choose carefully where you intend to keep these items.
