🌱 Helping Herbs & Plants Grow 🌿
Have you started your herb garden this spring?
Have you yet to start one? Or have you any existing herbs you’re taking care of?
If so there are a couple ideas I would like to share with you!
✨ a fresh start ✨
starting a brand new herb garden is really exciting and rewarding. You get to reap the benefits of the plants when they are grown from seed for a way better price, plus you get to brag you raised it from the ground up.
you can get really fun with it. Paint your pots different colors, paint or draw sigils on it , or plant in an interesting container like a tea cup. Whatever you would love to see some green in!
I know that some people might struggle with growing herbs from seed or have other growing issues so I have a few tips…
✨ Tips for growing ✨
✨ use a peat moss based soil for seeding. It creates the perfect environment for growth. Be mindful of what soil you’re using because they hold different amounts of water.
✨ be mindful of how deep you plant the seeds, they should only be covered with as much dirt as they are big. If the seeds are tiny they can be pressed into the top of the soil lightly.
✨ water a little bit everyday. Certain herbs don’t hold up very well without water and when you are growing from seed you need to keep the soil most
✨ place a plastic bag around the pot to generate humidity. This will help the seed germinate as the moisture is held in. It creates a greenhouse effect and I find this is the most effective method to grow any type of seed. Check under the bag regularly but make sure it isn’t too wet as this can generate fungus. It is okay to leave it alone for its first couple days as the humidity has to build up.
✨ if your poor plant gets a fungus, sprinkle some cinnamon for its anti fungal properties! If you get a pest problem use eucalyptus essential oil and water to pray on plants. Safe for plants but not for bugs!
✨ place in a well lit sunny location, a window sill is perfect. Direct sun though, can be too intense sometimes and you might find that your plants will sunburn.
✨ once they are too big for pots you can transplant them outside. If you can’t bring them outside just use a bigger pot. The more soil they have the better and bigger they will grow.
✨ use your magick on your plants, water them with blessed moon water, sun water or crystal water.
✨ enchant your plants by holding them and visualizing that you are filling it with energies. Speak to them, craft a sigil for growth, burn to activate and put the ashes in the soil. Pass the plants through sage or incense smoke.
✨ Surround them with magickal items of your choosing. Place crystals around your plants to help them grow! The crystals will create a steady flow of energy, stimulating growth. You can choose plant magick crystals or any other crystal you see fit. Any type of Quartz is perfect!
🌸 🌫️ Personally I have a smokey Quartz geode and some rose quartz. 🌫️🌸
make a plant growth spell jar to bring an abundance of growth all year long!
