Attracting Fairies to Your Garden

Create a garden that is conductive to all life. Put up birdhouses, birdbaths and bird feeders, bat houses and hummingbird feeders.

Plant flowers and plants that are attractive to bees and butterflies. Fairies are attracted to any place where there are butterflies. Put nuts out for the squirrels.

Whatever you do to bring life to your garden will bring fairies as well.

Here is a short list of plants that attract beautiful butterflies and fairies to your garden:

  • Achillea millefolium (common yarrow)
  • Aster novi-belgii (New York aster)
  • Chrysanthemum maximum (Shasta daisy)
  • Coreopsis grandiflora/certicillata (coreopsis)
  • Lavendula denata (French lavender)
  • Rosemarinus officinalis (rosemary)
  • Thymus (thyme)
  • Buddleia alternifolia (fountain butterfly bush)
  • Buddleia davidii (orange-eye butterfly bush, summer lilac)
  • Potenilla fruitiosa (shrubby cinquefoil)
  • Petunia hybrida (common garden petunia)
  • Verbena (verbenas, vervains)
  • Scabiosa caucasica (pincushion flowers)
  • Cosmos bipinnatus (cosmos)
  • Zinnia elegans (common zinnia)

Install a small fountain or waterfall or put in a fish pond. You might want to include statues of fairies. Anything that reflects light or is colorful and moving particularly attracts the gnomes and elves. Both fairies and water sprites like the splashy sound and sight of a fountain.

Leave an area of your garden a bit wild and not too cultivated. It need not be a large space, but having one area that is dedicated to the fairies will make them feel very welcome.

Ask fairies and elves to come to your garden. "Where intention goes, energy flows." Whatever you place your conscious awareness on, you will pull into your life. As you put your attention on fairies and gnomes and the elemental realm, they will respond by being drawn into your garden.
