I gather this herb for a magick spell,
Bring harm to none, may it turn out well.
By the powers of earth and air, fire and water,
I conjure up love, safety, money, health, and laughter.
By all the powers of three time three,
As I will it, then so must it be.

I really enjoy this book. For those who are well versed in the magical uses for herbs or those who have a naturally green thumb, it may be a bit elementary. But for someone such as myself who is still learning, it's a great resource.

The cover is gorgeous and the illustrations throughout really add to the text. I found it to be informative and thought provoking. It contains a ton of info on a wide variety of herbs, as well as an entire chapter devoted to "Gothic Herbs and Forbidden Plants", which

Ellen Dugan really knows her gardens and wild plants. I was very impressed with her knowledge and research and the time she put into writing this herbal. Not only does this book present common trees and plants to the garden witch, but it also goes into magical detail on wild plants such as wildflowers and lesser-known herbs and shrubs.

I thoroughly enjoyed how she breaks down each category, and how she applies each plant to the planets, days of the week, sabbats, etc. This herbal would make a gr

Ellen Dugan considers herself a garden/green witch, and so she uses a lot of plant material in her spells. She shares her knowledge, both horticultural and magickal in this volume.

This book, written after ‘Garden Witchery’, adds to what she presented there. In this one, she writes about being a green witch in the city, wildflowers and hedgerows, more magickal correspondence lists, flower & plant folklore, designing a garden with feng shui, and has beautiful drawings of plants. The only thing th

Garden Witch’s Herbal by Ellen Dugan is Highly Recommended!
This book is packed full of information on identifying, growing and utilizing the wildflowers, shrubs and trees associated with witchcraft. Ellen provides descriptions and where and when to plant and harvest many of these. Simple tips are included on each plant along with a sample spell for each. There are chapters on Gothic Herbs and Forbidden Plants in which she describes several such as Aconite, Black Nightshade and more—complete wit

Çöp de değil de.. En azından botanik bilgiler doğru.. Ama tekerleme büyüler obsesif kompulsif davranış örüntülerine benziyor. Tamamını okuma zahmetine katlanamadım açıkçası. Yeni başlayanlar için eğlenceli bir botanik kitabı işlevi görebilir.

I always enjoy Ellen's book, so it was no surprise that I gained a ton of useful information that I am currently applying to my own garden. I loved her ideas for the themes and the information (esp metaphysical) on the plants exceeded my expectations.

Lovely book, lots of great info. My only complaint is the plant illustrations aren’t in colour. I was also hoping to see garden plans.

Another great read by Ellen Dugan. If you're looking to become a garden witch Ellen is the witch for the job. As always knowledgeable and humorous.

A really good resource for gardening and working with magical herbs.

I think I will find this book very helpful when it comes to making my plantings this year! My favourite chapter was the one on hedgerows, which, thanks to this book, I now want to research much more. The chapters on wildflowers and trees were also favourites of mine. I appreciate that Dugan emphasized the need to connect with nature as central to understanding yourself and your beliefs (whatever those may be).

One wish I have is that Dugan would have left out the anecdotes included for "humour".

I enjoyed this, and have already marked down the next book I want to read by Ellen.

I learned a lot about herbs, which was the main reason I bought the book, and will definitely be reading it over and over again as the years go one so I can perfect my gardens and, specifically, my herb gardens.

A descent look at the folklore and modern magickal look at plants. The gardening sections are very well done, especially for a complete beginner (which I am not).
