6 Ways To Attract Good Fairies To Your Garden - The Cabbage Blog


If you have a garden and you want it to be magical and free of evil fairies, I highly recommend befriending some Good Fairies. However, this isn't always an easy task.  Most Good Fairies that I know of don't have cell phones or Facebook pages, so it requires a little effort and creativity to make their acquaintance.  Here's six methods that I have found effective for attracting Good Fairies (and other magical creatures) to my garden:

1. Make A Place For Them

Every Good Fairy needs a good home.  It doesn't have to be elaborate (though that doesn't hurt).  Just make sure you dedicate a special place just for them, even if it is just a simple flower pot or a tree stump.


2. Charm Them With Flowers

Everyone loves flowers and Good Fairies are no exception.  They are attracted by all varieties of blooms but including some low growing, smaller plants just for them is always a good idea.

3. Use Your Imagination

Good Fairies come in many fashions and forms and not all of them are obvious or logical.  So make sure you keep your mind open to all possibilities and your eyes open to all the beauty around you.

4. Practice Stillness

You won't attract Good Fairies if you are too busy to notice them or benefit from their magic.  This is just one of many reasons you should allow yourself some time in your garden for rest and contemplation.  

5. Be Kind
