ancient/witchy gardens

blackgavotte(5aNS)June 1, 2011

Is anyone out there doing a witchy type garden? I have just started a new garden, getting the layout decided etc, its a very, very small strata yard but knowing me, I will cram lots into it within the next year or two... does anyone have ideas? I have some sun, ( not enough) and a fair amount of shade, live in lower mainland B.C., lots of rain, especially this year !!!

Not sure that kind of garden that is? you mean something that looks creepy? In which case- a Harry Lauder Walking Stick shrub. Black mondo grass. Moss covered stone statues..

When I think ancient/witchy garden I automatically think tons of medicinal herbs and lots of variety. Being in lower mainland BC you've got a climate that makes it ideal to keep an herb garden that would be suited to something grown in old England.
