Are you planning to create a culinary witch garden, a herb garden, or a ritual space filled with plants? If so, I’m sure there’s something here for you.
Perhaps you already have a witchy garden (yay!), but you’re looking for more plants to grow. In today’s blog post, I’m sharing 10 plants for your witch garden, whether it’s indoors or outdoors.
We have an outdoor space, but unfortunately, it’s covered in wooden decking. That means I can’t create much of a witch garden outside. I do, however, keep plants in my bedroom and in our communal space. They’re absolutely imperative for my wellbeing!
Many witches love to cultivate poisonous plants, but I’m not experienced in that field. Consequently, I won’t be recommending any poisonous plants here. If you do wish to grow plants like foxglove or nightshades, I’d recommend reading some informed herb books. I’ve heard that this one is good for beginners.

Get Creative with your Witch Garden
Now you’ve read 10 Plants For Your Witch Garden, hopefully you’re feeling inspired to create your own! There are many ways to get creative with creating your own magickal and witchy garden. Here are a few ideas:
- Many witches like to plant their herbs and flowers according to the moon cycle, and harvest them under the moonlight. Always sow your seeds during the new moon phase! There are some exceptions to this rule, so I’d suggest reading all about the principle of Moon Harvesting if you wish to follow this path.
- Include some crystals alongside your indoor plants! I surround my cacti and succulents with quartz.
- Enjoy the mindfulness of gardening and appreciate the joy of nature.
