How to Attract Fairies to your Garden | Bring Fairies into your Backyard!

Updated on July 1, 2013

How to Plant a Fairy Garden

Do you want to know how to attract fairies to your garden?

I love looking for fairies and have been blessed with the ability to commune with them for many years now. So when I moved into my own house, I was determined to create a beautiful fairy garden. I soon discovered, however, that there is more to making a fairy garden than simply planting pretty flowers and letting a small patch grow wild!

So, I learned how to choose the right flowers and make the right design choices, and now I have a beautiful garden that the fairies love. And because I work hard at tending my garden, the fae are happy and bless our home with good fortune and a little of their magic!

Ways to Attract Fairies to your Garden

Do you want to design a garden that is an absolute haven for fairies? More and more people are awakening to the knowledge that the fae, like angels, are very real indeed. Although we cannot usually see them with the physical eye, they are there in elemental form, and it is possible to train your mind to connect with them. There is more information on how to do this at one of the links at the bottom of this page (just don't forget to come back and learn how to make your beautiful garden!)

There are lots of things to consider when designing your fairy abode and becoming an instant magnet for the Fair Folk!

* Flowers

* Trees

* Colours

* Sounds

* Scents

* Hiding places

* Provisions for wildlife

* Being eco-friendly

* Your native soil and weather conditions

And much more!

Plants for an Enchanted Garden

Sacred trees, native wildflowers and magical scented herbs are a great starting point for your garden. If a plant is attractive to wildlife then it will be attractive to fairies too! Use different flowers for different themes, seasons and areas of your yard.

Remember to tend your plants regularly, and make sure you use eco-friendly methods, preferably organic! Don't just throw weeds and fallen leaves away, make use of them in compost or mulch, and if you have to get rid of some pests, either use organic pesticides or even better, unleash an army of predators via biological control!

Offerings for the Fairies in your Garden

Once your garden is ready for fairies, there are a few extra enticements to help bring them out of their hiding places.

* Put out offerings, such as bread, milk, honey, cream, milk, mead or sweet treats

* Leave gifts, such as home baked cakes, handmade crafts or natural objects like crystals and shells

* Put out little houses and shelters for the fae to play in, or, if you're not creative, use small birdhouses

* Play enchanting music, or hang musical objects like windchimes. Fairies love sound and song!

Finally, laugh and play in your garden. After all, more than anything else, the fae love to have fun!

      My question is when will the Fairies summon me out the garden? I sure hope it stops snowing before Easter. At this rate the crocuses won't be blooming 'til May Day.

      Hello All,

      I actually have what I believe is an incredible fairy photo. We were visiting my family in Atchison, Kansas over Christmas last month.In the photo you can see my son and my brother are playing a video game. My daughter and I were sitting beside them when she took this photo with her new tablet. The photo was taken on December 21st, 2011. Dec. 21 is the date of the Winter Solstice we found out later - this could be the Winter Solstice fairy! I have recently read that on this night the doors to the fairy realm are open. I am still amazed at this photo. It took a lot of research on my part to come to this conclusion. There are 2 more photos taken within a few minutes showing the fairy descending from the area around the fireplace mantel. I can let you know more if you e-mail me. I've never seen a fairy, I have always strongly believed that there are all kinds of beings unknown to most of us that live on earth - beings that live on the earth's surface, in the subterranean earth, and in other dimensions. Sometimes the veil is lifted for a time so that we can see them (concerning beings from other dimensions - such as fairies). I can't figure out how to send a link here, so please e-mail me and I will e-mail you back with the photos attached.

      I would love to hear any input from you all and hope to hear what you think is appearing in this remarkable photo? Thank you.

      Laura

      hello, my name is kaleo I live in Hawaii im really not sure if I have any faeries near me. Im starting to disbelief but still trying to hold on to the faery realm and faith im a christian my parents say faeries are non sense. My belief in the faeries is so strong that every time im done school I go outside till the sun falls in the ocean and I look for them. I try to pick litter up im very eco-friendly and a soft,goodness,loveable,kindhearted person and yes im a boy.Im very confused I don't know why the faeries don't want to show themselves to me I try to HARD that most of the time I cry myself to sleep. Which doesn't mean they're making me mad im mad because I can't see them I try to try not giving up still can't find them. We do have menehune's which are exactly like faeries we also have mo`o wahin'e which is either the lizard lady or the mermaid she still exist now days. She's a guardian of thee oceans the menehune's work at night when we can't see them when sun comes up they leave what they finished and what they didn't finish. I think we have spirits we have Pele the princess of lava if you take pork across the highway near the cave down by the forest then things get ugly. Here's the story of what happened Pele lava princess was inlove with a pig he wasn't a pig but can transform into one they fell inlove he cheated on her so she wanted no pork to cross her land which is pig. But one the...NIGHT MARCHERS the evil spirits that's been coruppted by the towns folk its been said that if you stare straight into their eyes you will either turn to ash,vanish,dissappear forever,be apart of their realm. My sister shared a story with me her name is kristy 27 years old she went on a trip to kauai so my sister and her friends were staying at a hotel for their hula halau. She said as they got to the hotel she was watching T.V and laughing and what not then all of a sudden she said she herd bom bom bom bom beating of their dums. That's signs of the Night Marchers menipulating spirits mischievous wicked men spirits Hawaiian guards. My sister said that when bthey ran to their auntys room she stared at the window eyes opened wide my sister cried for as she knew her aunty had look at the Night Marchers eye because her eyes were blood shot covered with red vanes. My sister looked out the window and saw footprints in the dirt band she herd them CHANTING e'au kumu eh kamalani eh kala eh kala. That's my sisters experience with those folks im not lying. Tis story ive bet you've were dying to hear my Grandma caroleen said as a little girl she could see the little folks she told me she has the second eyesight. She told me that when her cousin marsilia came over they both had the sight. She said that they both went into the yard its like a forest type but beautiful butterflies dragonflies everywhere brezze so cool grass green and fresh water clean and deliteful and the way it drips and falls into the water the way the leaves and petals fall from the trees the mushrroms in the fields. She told me that one day when they went back a little man appeared from the bushes then a little female appeared too but they had wings she said those were the faeries they met then more little folks came out they danced around my Grandma and her cousin aunt marsilia she said it appeared as if they were in a circle like she told me it was a faery ring they danced and danced till dawn broke. My Grandma and her cousin always went back their fr years and years with the little folk. she told me that they would come into the house through bthe rip screen they're invisible she told me and they come through the walls through the holes they still come around when I go to their house because she saved their lives because one day her father and his workers wanted to destroy the forest to make houses the dryads were furious and the tree spirits as well. My Grandma jumped in front of the crane and told them if you're going to destroy this forest you have to go through me they said ok and moved the crane. She told me that the faeries were raging with anger and destruction and madness they helped my Grandma and the dryads and tree spirits grew abger as well every little folks there grew mad. she said we shall cause a battle the workers brought guns while my Grandma had the little folks the mermaids came out of the ponds the leprechauns flew out of the misty rainbows the my Grandma said a CHANT the workers got goose bumps she said '' We are here thou will protect faeries from here amd near we live here so shall be it now its time i summon the wind spirits to blow through wind chimes i summon thee water spirits to run down the river lane thou shall not be told again or you'll face thy flame i summon thee fire spirits to rise so high and fast this forest shall live long and shall live last i summon thee EARTH spirits rumbling under my feet crumble and shake do not coruppt thy spirits to AWAKE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!'' then a huge tornadoe swiped the workers and crane out but the tornadoe was colorful the faeries were happy again that's my families experience hoped you enjoyed GOD BLESS YOU ALL....
