(Lady Beltane says, “The Witch’s Green Garden and The Witch’s Green Garden Journal are fantastic book that made me want to go out and buy lots of non-GMO seeds for herbs, flowers, and vegetables only problem with that is the deer, squirrels, rabbits ectara that run around everywhere in my yard. I thought of putting up chicken wire to keep them out but it would have to be too tall for me to access me gardens to keep the deer out. I was in thralled with Ms. Murphy-Hiscock’s ideas on how to planet a garden for different aspect of a witch’s magickal and spiritual practice. For example: Planting a round garden than splitting into different planets and flowers the represent the elements of Air, Water, Fire, and Earth. This book contains ideas for planting a garden for the Moon’s phases too. Plus, a lot of other great ideas. For example, blessing the tools you will use in your special gardens. I never in 40+ years of being out of the broom closet thought to do this. I will definitely be doing it this year before I plant anything.)
