Start your plants in containers before transferring them to the garden. This really increases the survival rate of young plants. It also permits you to tighten the time between plantings. You can plant the seedlings once you have removed the old plants.
Personally I prefer to grow all my Flowers, Herbs & Veggies from seeds. I find it very therapeutic and relaxing as well as very beneficial as far as knowing that my plants have never seen a pesticide or anything that is not Natural.
I sale my Veggies & Herbs at Farmer’s Markets and use my Herbs to sale as well as make my Herbal Products with.
Growing from seed is not for everyone. Some people just don’t have the time, or room in their home, trust me I know how easy it is to run out of room when you have 10 seed starting trays around your kitchen, lol. For this reason, I also sell Flowers & Herbs that I have started from Seed and that I can certify are Organic. If you would like to purchase any Herbs, Flowers, or Veggies as small plants please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Plants can be shipped!!!
A witch’s most prized possession! All your secrets, spells, recipies for herbal practices, correspondances for colors & stones, instructions for medicinal herbal products, etc etc etc!
Your Book of Shadows is yours! This is where I write down anything pertaining to anything Witchy that you think will be needed for future use. Over the year’s you will fill them up with information and start new ones. If you are a beginner to Magick & Spellcasting I would recommend starting off with 2 books, you have the opportunity to start off organized so that 2 years from now you aren’t thumbing through 5 books ( because if you are anything like me I collected all kinds of information, not just from the internet but books and other witches you meet on sites like Facebook ) to find something that you wrote down a long time ago. I would use my Book of Shadows for writing spells, incantations~things like that, and the 2nd book for correspondences with herbs, stones, essential oils, colors, etc.
I personally even had to take it a step further and have a book just for herbs~information on them, their Magickal uses as well as their Medicinal uses. I study Herbology through Sacred Mists Online College, so I have a lot of content just on herbs.
