Fairy Gardens are Great Attracters

fairies_in_gardenSince it’s gardening season, I thought I would expand on some earlier information that we gave you about  creating a fairy garden–

First of all, a happy,  flourishing garden, created with fairies in mind, can certainly attract fairies to you. Your garden doesn’t have to be huge and labor intensive,  it can be as small or as large as you feel comfortable with.  For those who aren’t really into gardening,  a few potted plants and maybe a little fountain on your patio or apartment balcony would be great.  The main point to remember is that you are creating something special for the fairies.

Here is a list of some plants that are known to attract fairies:
Lavender, Honeysuckle, Foxglove, Cowslip, Snapdragon, Jasmine, Rosemary, Lily of the Valley, Roses (especially the Fairy Rose), Coral Bells, Pansies, Primroses, Violets. Bluebells, Ferns, Sweet Pea, Mugwort, Pussy willow, White Sage, Gardenia, Lilies, Moonwort, Mullein, Cattails, Blackberry, Queen Anne’s Lace, and Bachelor’s Buttons.  Any plant that you love would also work great.

In addition to the above, consider adding the plants below for the reasons listed:
Elderberry – These berries can be burned in a fire to invite the fae to gather.  Fairies absolutely love Elderberry wine and Elderberry will surely draw fairy visitors to you!
Thyme – Wearing Thyme (especially Wild Thyme) will increase ones ability to see fairies.  It can also be sprinkled on window sills and on your doorstep to invite the fae to visit.
Heather – Greatly loved by fairies – they are very passionate about it!  It is also used to open a doorway between the two worlds.
Clover -This plant is very sacred to the fae and any type of clover will attract them.

Some trees to consider adding to your garden area:
Rowan – A very protective tree, used to protect against bad fairies.
Oak, Ash, & Hawthorn – legend suggests that “Faery folks are in the Oaks.”  They are said to love to dance around this tree.  In addition, where there is an oak, ash and thorn(Hawthorn) together, they create a space where it is easy to see the fae.
Mulberry – Connected to the Faery Goddess Danu, Mulberry is tree of protection and strength.
Elder – This tree is under the protection of the Elder Mother who protects fairies from dark energies and spirits.  Because of this, it is a refuge for fairies and will attract them.
Hazel – This is a very magical tree that has been used to summon fairies.
Lilac – The sweet scent of Lilac is said to draw pixies to your garden.

Consider leaving a small area wild for the fae – they really love that.

Other garden attractors:
*A water feature in your garden such as a birdbath, wishing well or pond
*a birdfeeder or any other means of supporting wildlife and nature.
*Glass globes or gazing ball,
*Bells or chimes,
*Fairy statues
*The Fairy Star on a flag or sign
*Because fairies are connected to “in between” places, consider adding an  archway or gateway or a fairy door, etc.
*An outdoor fairy house
*A “Good Faeries Welcome Here” Sign or Banner
*Use plenty of rocks for decoration and borders and add some special  crystals, etc.
*Tie some ribbons to some of your bush or tree branches in bright colors – it works wonders!
*Add shiny objects to your garden such as silver to attract the fae

Happy Gardening!!!


Update:  Hi Everyone!  Because of the number of comments on this post, I am moving all further comments to the forum.  It would be very  helpful if you could try to stay on topic or create a  new topic if you would like–it makes it so much less confusing that way.  Thanks so much!

    Hi Natalie,

    I’ve always believed in faeries and stuff. I remember reading some of the articles on your website, and you were talking about elves that you talked to. If you can(if the faeries and elves allow it) can you show me a picture? Only if you can, I understand if you don’t want to.

    Its just that I have seen so many paintings, and people with costumes on, but I’ve never seen a real one. I’m gonna try to make a small garden, but since I live at a condo with my parents(and both my dads and moms house) I am not allowed to put up a few pots of plants.

    Anyway thanks so much,

    Hi Natalie,
    How do you meditate if looked it up on the internet but it doesnt work maybe you could tell me

    Hey Daisy,

    The elves live in their own house in their own world they but visit us quite often. Sometimes one of them, Mr. E. will come thru my sister Susan (she channels him) and then he enjoys trying some of our food and candy etc. He loves chocolate but, if I remember correctly he said the red licorice I gave him tasted like flavored paste!

    Sounds like a perfect place to find the fae!


  5. Shannon July 29, 2009 at 10:27 pm #

    This is the third time I have written and have not seen any comments regarding my posts. I will try one more time. Recently I saw what looked like a cross between a cat and a raccoon in my room in the inbetween state. I was screaming since I had never seen anything like it. I have seen a faery and some ghosts but, this was my first time. There were actually three of them. Does anyone have any idea what they are? It almost had a chesire grin and was dark and stipped. Thanks, I don’t know who else to ask.

    Hi Shannon,

    Sorry we didn’t get to you sooner – very busy at the moment…

    Anyway, I will ask the elves if they know what you have seen. Can you tell me what they were doing when you saw them? Since you said you were screaming, I’m guessing they didn’t seem friendly to you but maybe you were just scared. Did they do anything threatening???


  7. admin July 30, 2009 at 1:38 am #

    Hey Daisy,

    Hmmm, I don’t think I can answer your meditation question without really thinking about it so I’m going to have to get back to you in a little bit (remind me if I get too busy and forget, ok?)

  9. Anne July 31, 2009 at 12:04 pm #

    oh also do you know where i can see pictures of fairys for real? not blurred lights. like clear. oh and do fairy wear clothes, and do they speak english or native languages

  10. Shannon August 1, 2009 at 12:00 pm #

    Hi again,

    Thanks for getting back to me I appreciate it. Regarding the cheshire cat-raccoons. They were not doing anything threatening just scared me since I had never seen anything like them before. They were laying on top my dresser. Two were laying stacked on top on each other. The third was sitting upright. They really were smiling at me. I know I open my third eye door and forget to close it when I want to. I have searched the internet and can’t find anything about what I saw but, I know I saw them. If the faery or elves have any idea I would appreciate it.
    Thanks again,

    Damien, take it from me, they ARE real.

    I am 46, and last year I saw one face to face for the first time in my adult life. As a child, I never saw them, but wished they were real– I just figured it was a nice myth, and left it at that.

    I saw a Brownie Faery for the first time last May. Always keep an open mind and never say “never”.

    If I had not said “Never” when I was younger, maybe I would have seen one as a young girl and had contact with them even by now.

    Daisy, I am not good at meditating either.

    But if you want to try,

    Here’s a list of things I learned from others:

    1. Find a comfortable place to sit — in the wildnerness, or a quiet room with a candle on, and a blanket to cover you if you get cold. Make sure you go to the bathroom beforehand.

    2. Ask God for protection– Alot of people ask thier guardian angels to protect them– or Archangel Micheal.

    3. Take deep breaths and shut your eyes., or stare into a candle or a bowl of water. Keep breathing deep breaths and get yourself really calm.

    4. Imagine yourself entering a garden area with lots of flowers, trees and butterflies. Visualize a blue butterfly coming up to greet you and you follow it to where it leads you.

    5. The butterfly stops at a thicket area with lots of trees and bushes. You feel the faeries there, though you can’t see them. You tell them, “I respect you guys; Please may I have contact with you?”

    6. And see what happens from there.

    I just wanted to share that when I set out a faery cottage I got over at the Collections catalog, I think some Pixies had fun with it.

    I had a little wooden table and chair set placed on top of the roof of the cottage. One day the wooden chair ended off of the roof and was neatly placed near the red swinging door below.

    I thought it was odd that it ended up there, as I hadnt touched anything. A few days later, the chair was gone. I thought an animal took off with it.

    Then we had alot of heavy rains early this Summer. I ended up having to clean up the faeries garden from all the puddles.

    When I got to the faeries cottage, I opened up the lid to clean out any wet stuff, when I saw the chair neatly placed along the side of the cottage wall inside!

    Noone human put it there– here it was on the top of the cottage, and in a period of days (before the weeks of heavy rain) it ended up INSIDE of the cottage!

    How cool is that :-) Im honored that the Fae or Pixies made use of it !

    HI Natalie
    is there any types of plants that the fairies don’t like or can give them a bad feeling about visiting?

  15. admin August 13, 2009 at 4:54 pm #

    Vivi–you talk to it in your head.


  16. Bri3 August 13, 2009 at 6:50 pm #

    hi i think i am having subtle contact with a fairy right now we are playing a sort of “game” where i ask for a sign and they give me one,to let me know that they’re there but are still unsure about me. i say thank you then earlier i recieved the glimpse of a small orb out of the corner of my eye,but then a pigeon flew up. were they trying to test me? because i’m pretty sure that was a fairy. :) 😀

  17. admin August 13, 2009 at 8:13 pm #

    Bri3 – Yes, this is how it often goes, they will respond if you talk to them but it isn’t usually anything real obvious to begin with. Sounds good!


  18. Bri3 August 13, 2009 at 10:21 pm #

    awesome! i have only been at this for two days! omg!

    Hi vanna,

    Hi Natalie
    Ive found about 5 fourleaf clover in my life and im 12. I find them mostly in my grans garden, ive only picked one. I never knew what luck you get with them so thats why i left most to grow. Now that i know they are great fairy attractors, im going to pick them and take them with my as a necklace :)
    I once found a sixleaf clover and i was so HAPPY! :)
    But when i showed my big brother, he grabed it off me. I tried to get it back, but then he RIPED IT APART IN LITTLE PEICES! :(
    I was SO SO SO sad and ANGRY at him.
    I never spoke to him that week and i got my revenge.
    Im still angry at him cause all he did was laugh. I hope i find a nother one. And i wonder what luck i would of gotten.
    Bye 4 now

    hi natalie,
    i cant write in the forum because its not working for me so i just want to say my glasses went missing today do you think the fae might of taken them??
    byeee x

  25. Navneeta ray September 19, 2009 at 8:00 pm #

    Yup Daisy they could most definitely have taken them :) hehehe bt ask them politely or request them to give it back to you, but first try to find a LOGICAL REASON why or where it could have gone ? still if you couldn’t find any logical explanation then first request them but still if dey dont return them then you have to say it out loud to them insisting them to give it back, try it then let us all know bt I think NATALIE would be ideal person to help u sweety, hope she’s back on d forum soon :) we r all waitin 4 her :) tc,lol,fairydust,cya,NAVNEETA

  26. dante September 26, 2009 at 10:20 am #

    fairies love to take everydy items it may be them but maybe they likem cuz there shiny and they most defenitely want your attention

  27. dante September 26, 2009 at 10:25 am #

    meditation is simply just relaxing your body if you want to talk to them then follow these instrutions…ask your highess power for protection…light the room with candles and smudge(burn some herbs) then i maging a cave…once you enter you are in the fairy realm…then the you appear into a valley with beatiful meadows…then you call them and once you see them talk to them and..say thanks to your highess power and extiguish the candles go threw the hole into the human world

    hope i help,
