I ordered seeds for the garden last night. As I told you earlier, I have to replant the stone bed, add something to the herb bed and the one by the South facing wall and I’m creating a spiritual corner (witch’s garden) and attempting to revive the bed on the North side.
These are the seeds I ordered:
- Winter Aconites (Eranthis hyemalis)
- Breckland Thyme (Thymus vulgaris)
- Tunic Flower (Petrorhagia saxifraga)
- California Bluebell (Phacelia campanularia) ‘Blue Wonder’
- Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia)
- Scarlet Sage (Salvia splendens) ‘Lighthouse Purple’
- Sweet Woodruff (Galium odoratum)
- Scarlet Beebalm (Monarda didyma)
I also got a free bag of Curly Kale (Brassica oleracea var. sabellica) ‘Dwarf Green Curled’ seeds
I’m also going to order some plants later, after the snow is gone and the digging’s done. I’m arranging a dinner for a couple of strong men to get some help with all the digging, since my body won’t let me do it alone.

These sound beautiful! I am trying to have a green thumb this spring -hasn’t always been my forte!
Thanks for sharing the lovely photo, as well.
It isn’t my forte either. Plants here either grow like weeds or die straight away, no middle ground.
Got my seeds a few weeks ago and starting to come up nicely. Best of luck with them X
Thanks 🙂 The same to you
Sounds awesome, I can’t wait to see pics when they come in!
I’ll probably do a couple of videos as well 🙂 Like the other years
I’m in the process of planning a garden this year. Life has been a whirlwind lately, which makes any sort of planning difficult! I’m hoping it dries up around here a bit so I can get to the backyard and really survey things. We moved into this house the end of November, so I haven’t really gotten a good idea of how the light and shade is going to be in my backyard! Can’t wait!
Your garden sounds like it’s going to be beautiful!
It’s been insanely busy here as well, so I’m way behind on the planning. Thanks 🙂 There will be pictures. Pictures from earlier years can be found at https://lindaursin.net/solvang/garden
I regularly write about using herbs to honor and worship St. Bridget of Ireland, and Bridget the Irish Goddess – and I highly recommend betony or St. Bride’s comb as a great witchy plant – loves rocks and sunshine!
Thanks for the tip, and it’s even hardy enough to grow here (I live in zone 4-5). I’m having some problem finding seeds for it though. Maybe next year.
Your herb garden sounds truly magical! I’m intrigued by the plants you have in the mix and look forward to following how they grow, heal, and paint your landscape.
Thank you 🙂 All of them won’t go in the same place though. Some are for the stone bed, some for the herb bed, some for the North side, and some for the witch’s garden I’m setting up in the South Western corner of my garden 🙂
