Fairies love nature in general, but they are especially drawn to flowers. Sometimes flowers are useful to fairies, but other times, they just like curling up inside a blossom to sleep the day away.
Whether in your backyard or a window box, here are ideas for planting a fairy-friendly garden:
Some fairies are summoned by the ringing of bluebells.
Wearing a daisy chain will protect you from fairy tricks.
Fairies use these flowers to make hats and gloves. Look closely and you will see tiny spots on the blossoms—fairy fingerprints!
This sweet-scented flower attracts fairies from all around the world.
To see invisible fairies, pick a marigold, swirl it in some water, and dab a few droplets on your eyelids.
Many fairies use this flower to make love potions.
Put some on your porch to let fairies know they’re welcome in your home.
The soft, silky pods make perfect fairy pillows.
Fairies are attracted to all kinds of shiny stones like agate, quartz, or crystal. Use them to decorate your garden and give the little ones a place to sit.
Fairies love to look at their reflection, so include shiny things like a mirror or a dish of water in your garden design.
