March is finally here, and with it comes spring! It’s been a long winter, and we are eager to bring in some fresh change and new life. With spring not officially beginning until March 20th, we have a few weeks to plan out our grand garden ideas. While we love the motivation this excitement is inspiring, there is a tinge of hesitancy that comes along with it. Gardens can be tricky. Even when you plant your seeds with the best intentions, and do everything you’re supposed to, plants are living things; which means they don’t always act the way you want them to. Whether it’s just a disappointing crop that produced little outcome, or a total massacre of all hope and greenery, the possibility of failure looms over our best laid garden plans.
To get an edge on garden catastrophes, everyone has their little secret. Some people sing to their plants. Some place a lucky gnome in their garden. Some use Feng Shui techniques to promote harmony and balance. Whatever your good luck charm may be, anything that gives you a boost of confidence is beneficial to staying motivated. For a trick to enhance your garden’s success using the energy of the Earth, you can use garden crystals. Crystals for plants aren’t so much about keeping you motivated, as they are about directing specific energies into your plants that will promote fertile growth and vibrancy. We all need help growing up, and just our cells react to the nurturing vibrations of crystals, so do those of plants. With all that the Earth gives us, our beautiful gardens included, crystals for plants are a way that we can give something back. We gift our plants with garden crystals as a symbol of the Earth’s cycle of giving. In this way, we pay our respect to nature and understand that we are a part of it, rather than just a consumer of it. As you plot out which plants to bring into your garden this year, think also about which garden crystals you can use to encourage growth. With crystals for plants, even people who have the worst luck with plants will be bragging about their green thumb—just don’t forget to water!
