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.

10 Plants For Your Witch Garden

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.

  1. This is the 1st year I ever admitted to anyone that I feel like a witch. Husband was really not surprised at the co.ment. I have always thrived with alot of ” plant energy” etc collected rocks ,weeds dead and alive, save strange objects and such. My broom this year is made from a very old peice of diamond willow, grape vine and echinacea!!!!!herbs tucked in too

    1. Lil smile. I am connected to the earth. I have worked with herbs medicinals purpose. My kids growing up would call me Voodoo lady. My son told me one day “You know mom if you grew up in the Real old days they probably would have burned you as a witch” this has come out to me many times in the past but was raised where witches were bad. But now that I have outside resources I understand it isn’t. I have have several readings done that came thru that I was once a medicine person/ healer in my past life.
      I am 63 years old, never been able to connect with anyone of my culture- now I have and I feel like I have blossomed and don’t have to be so secretive. Thou I don’t admit to very many that I am a witch. I am a green/ hedge witch.

  2. I am lucky to have most of these plants in my garden already. I also grow sage and quite a few other herbs. I love it!
