Alchemy Works Seeds for Magick Herbs

Black mandrake root in jarThe very best way to develop your wortcunning (knowledge of plants) is to create a witch's garden where you grow your own magick herbs. These are seeds of plants that Pagans and witches of all kinds use and learn from (and lots of regular folks love too!). Some are very friendly herbs; others are aloof, and the baneful herbs can be dangerous to us apes. But all have something to teach us. Seeds are listed here in alphabetical order by common name; throughout the site, seed pages are linked to each other in alphabetical order by botanical name. You can also try the search engine for help in finding seeds by their various common names or uses. Each seed also links back to the ruling planet or Element (in pre-modern times, everyone, not just witches or mages, could identify the known planets in the night sky, so this was a handy way to organize magickal uses). Planetary correspondences allow you to judge more easily which spiritual entities to associate with a particular plant and which plants are best for what sort of work, be it in terms of traditional witchcraft, Wiccan, hedgewitch, ritual magick, Pagan worship, or just plain old enjoyment. I sell no genetically modified seeds, and most are open-pollinated, which means you can save seeds from the plants you grow and they will come true. Shipping for seeds in the US is a flat rate of $5.95 no matter how many seed packets you buy and includes tracking. Seed orders to Australia and NZ are usually seized by your customs department, so don't waste your money. Looking for a seed you can't find? Just ask.

Safe Seed Pledge: None of these seeds are chemically treated in any way, none are hybrids (so you can save seed from the plants you grow and expect that seed to produce the same plant in your conditions), none are patented, and none are genetically modified. Many are harvested from wild plants, which means they are rich in diversity: they will not germinate all at once, flower all at once, or be all the same height. They cost a bit more because most of them come from wholesalers who supply growers, so the germination is higher and the seeds are stronger than the by-the-pound stuff from wholesalers who supply highway beautification programs.   If you are looking for a particular seed for your Pagan garden, let me know and I will get it for you if possible.

Note to international customers.  Some countries have particularly fierce customs regulations and vigilant customs officers.  All mail going out of the US requires a customs label now; I put "Horticultural Seeds" and "Commercial Sample" as the contents. I cannot put false labels on any packages, so please don't ask me to. I cannot refund for shipments that are seized. Top
