Garden Magick 1

A garden is already a pretty magickal place, but a little spellwork can help your plants thrive. This spell is meant for the early spring when plants are just starting to sprout. You will need:

• 1 pint of milk
• A few spoons of honey
• 4 wooden garden stakes
• A length of green ribbon

If you can get organic milk and honey, even better. Mix the honey into the milk, and bring it out side to your garden with the stakes and ribbon. Try to do this on a sunny day after your plants have begun to come up.

Cut your ribbon into 4 pieces, long enough to tie a bow around the tops of each stake. Choose 4 points around your garden that would more or less surround the plants. North, south, east and west are ideal but not necessary. At each point, pour some of the honey milk and then push the stake into the moist earth. With each stake, say:

Milk and honey, flowing out
Goddess bless my every sprout
Growing strong
Season's long
Today I bless my garden

Your garden is now blessed with magic, but you still need to water it regularly and keep it free of weeds if you want it to thrive.
