With needs being as they must now is a great time to start a Magickal Victory Garden. Spiritually based gardening is one of my favorite passions. I have always loved plants, what real witch doesn’t, and in college I minored in Plant Science and Horticulture (don’t make me get my chainsaw.)

These days, some people, myself included, don’t necessarily have the space to spread out and create the magickal victory garden of our dreams. This shouldn’t be a barrier, plants, including both important magickal herbs and flowers can be grown on a sunny windowsill or under a grow light. One of my favorite posts is about making a Magickal Protection Window Box. I love my window box, and for my recent years of apartment dwelling it has been a lifesaver.

This year my Magickal Victory Garden includes dill for communication, basil for protection and healing, chives for health and removing negativity, and a few more treasures. Another idea might be to start some ginger, which is said to raise psychic ability and awareness. Or you may even wish to grow some mint, Anyone who has grown mint in their garden knows this plant could almost be considered a weed, hearty and powerful it’s benefits are numerous. Mint can be used in spells for healing, love, money, and psychic power. You can choose from peppermint, spearmint, catmint, and many others. Consequently each have their own specific vibrations, so take those into consideration along with your own personal preferences when stocking your magickal cabinet.

One thing I like to do with my container plants is surround them with crystals and other power items (place these outside the pot.) This will help to establish a beneficial relationship between the stones and the plants. There are many other magickal herb posts on this blog, please check them out if you have the time.

I have a dear friend in Texas planing trees, and another in New Orleans sewing sunflowers. What are you growing in your victory garden, I’d love to hear from all my readers in the comments, drop a list of you favorite plants, or better yet a photo.

As always if you have enjoyed what you read here please remember to like and most definitely share.
