Invocation to Flora
By the flowers of the field, Oh Lady of delight
By the crops Thy blessings yield, Oh Maiden clear and bright
We invoke Thy presence in kernals and sheaves
We see Thy face in the moonlit leaves.
Come now to us, extend Thy grace
Come into our circle within this holy place.
Daughter of the earth, drinking sunlight,
Queen of plants, sister of night.
By leaf and twig, by root and bough
By water and earth, come to us now.
Bring us Your grain the staff of our lives.
Bring us Your fruit wherever it thrives.
Mistress of herbs unlock Your power
And lead us into Your leafy bower.
In love and joy we call Your name
With comforting hope You ease our pain.
We see Thee in the swelling bud,
We feel Thy stirring in our blood;
O Lady clear, we feel Thee near.
In spring a Maiden with flowers crowned.
In summer and harvest, the Mother renewed.
In fall and winter the Hag holds sway
Yet the Maiden remains but months away.
Great Triple Goddess, the seasons flow
And ebb to Thy will, as You come and go

@Magdalaina- my mother found out the hard way about thyme and mint and most of the herbs when she put them in the ground....they went nuts and she never got rid of the hybrids that sprouted up ater....it was a nightmare...10 years later and the weeds smell still of mint!!!!! L.O.L. so as from personal experience i tend to grow them in pots nice sized one not the little ones or the gigantic ones....it will keep them contained and if need be you can then move them whereever ya need to!!!! 

as to what you should plant Rosemary basil and chives and SAGE are great plant. i tend to let my chives go so they flower....nice purple flowers too....lol. but back to the point- plant only what you know your going to use this season

HI, first time poster here.  New to everything "witchy".  I plan on using my raised bed garden to grow herbs this year.  I have 16 sq ft.  One plant is what I usually plant in each square.  I would like to know opinions on the best herbs to grow.  I usually grow Rosemary, Basil and Chives.  My thyme went crazy so I need to know if that is a good one to grow.  Any ideas?

Merry Meet everyone. I am new to this site and am just returning to my wiccan roots and am looking to learn what has slipped away in the 30 years I have not practiced. Are their any (free or otherwise) classes or teachers to re-teach this old dog the old ways and maybe some new ones. I hate comparissons but My favorite part of being a Witch is like Piper from Charmed. I love the kitchen and herbs and oils. Can anyone help me?

Hi everyone, i'm new to wicca and have a passion for medicinal and edible herbs! I still have alot to lear and, like Dr. Moundshroud, have alot of difficulty cultivating plants. Everything i try to plant seems to get mad and die on me, even with all the care and love i can give. I even killed Basil, Aloe and other types of medicinal herbs. Am I just a terrible wiccan? Got any advice?

Hello everyone!

I've tried most of my life to get things to grow, but my thumb is continually black. The only thing I've had any success with were wild plants and roses. If it's native to a forest, I can get it to go everywhere, but anything that is supposedly "good" for my area or "easy" or from a nursery will die. I have killed mint. MINT!!! Who does that?!

I'm frustrated enough that I skipped gardening this year. As we move quickly toward Autumn, I'm feeling the sadness. I just want a garden that looks like everyone else's! I crave fresh herbs and pretty vegetables!

Don't get me wrong, my ferns are wonderful and I dare anyone to say they can grow poke better than the women of my family. (No joke - stalks large as most young trees, a story tall, looks like a mangrove, and is covered in birds.) But a little patch of Scarborough Fair or a potted plant of my very own would be oh, so lovely.

I'm open to trying for some cool weather plantings, but I'd also like something I could have inside to brighten the place up for Winter. My yard has nearly every possible light option, but inside is pretty much all either low light or cold in the winter. So rooms facing East or West are chilly and rooms that stay dark are warm. I'm near the Virginia-North Carolina border, so I'm in zone 7.

Does anyone know of an indoor plant which can withstand such conditions? Or is there something recommended for accidental serial plant killers? I'd like an herb, but with the death of Rosemary, I'm resigned and open to anything.

Thank you in advance! :)

Start with what grows best for your area and what you like to use. with its basil chives thyme and such. What ever you like and grow where you live or start a greenhouse for those herbs that don't do well in your region.
