For the Fairies
Since it’s the gardening season, I thought I would give you an idea of the best fairy garden plants to use if you want to attract fairies.
First of all, a happy, flourishing garden, created with fairies in mind, can definitely 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 want. 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.
Some Great Fairy Garden Plants
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.
Lavender in a Fairy Garden
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 love Elderberry wine, and Elderberry will surely draw fairy visitors to you!
Thyme – Wearing Thyme (especially Wild Thyme) will increase one’s 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.
