WHY YOU NEED A FAIRY GARDEN

Encouraging fairies to your home is very simple. Place a fairy house in a prominent spot in your home or garden. Giving fairies a home will show them you welcome them with a fairy-friendly environment. In the garden you add a small fairy door to a tree or stone. Add decorations to your fairy house like a tiny bird bath, mushrooms, maybe a small chair or two. Make them feel comfortable and they will become a part of your home.

There are few things to remember when starting your fairy garden – call it Fair-etiquette. The area around your fairy house is now sacred to the fairies and will be their gateway into your home. It is now a place for you to leave gift for them, as well as them to leave gifts for you. What kind of gifts? Make them fairy cakes (crumbs from your desserts), drops of water, punch, tea, even beer, and maybe on occasion a thimble of honey. But you must remember to NEVER have any iron need your fairy house. Iron is poisonous to fairies.

You can make your fairy house as intricate or simple a you wish. The materials used should be natural – sticks and twigs from the backyard, herbs, moss, flowers, scrap wood. If you have any copper about, fairies love copper!

Remember to greet your fairies and send them good wishes! They will return the favor!
