If you've been following my Instagram page you may have noticed that I've been creating an interesting, healing garden.
Despite my palpable enthusiasm, I'm really not doing anything new. In the olden days, practitioners of metaphysics and magic used to create extensive gardens complete with herbs, trees, vegetables, and edible flowers. Stories of witches harvesting by the moonlight, or collecting herbs in the midnight and speaking to the trees are abundant in folklore.
What can you plant in your magick healing garden?
Medicinal herbs and health-promoting flowers are the highlights of any witchy garden. While there is no hard-and-fast rule about choosing plants for your witchy garden, you can always take inspiration from what I have done:
- Mint (keep it in pots)
- Pennyroyal (another one for the pots)
- White Sage
Then there's the veggies! We've been hugely successful with growing cucumbers, spinach (I seriously love spinach (but I think I ate it every day for 3 months haha!) and cherry tomatoes. I've struggled with the Roma and garden tomatoes, quite frankly they grew wild and I haven't had any fruit yet. Our blueberry bush is booming along with our passionfruit plants!
What's on my to do list? I'm in the middle of researching plants that are found on moon gardens at the moment. Thanks for asking!
We'll anyhoo.. That's enough about my garden. What's in yours? I'd love to know.
Shine bright, Pauline xx
