The 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 witches, Pagans, and mystics of all kinds use
and learn from (and lots of other 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
Each seed we offer 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.
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 rites, hedgewitch work, rootwork, ritual
magick, Pagan worship, or just plain old enjoyment.
Alchemy Works does not sell genetically modified seeds. Most of the seeds we carry
are open-pollinated, which means you can save seeds
from the plants you grow and they will come true. Check out our
Safe Seed Pledge to learn more.
Please note that all seeds marked with an asterisk (*) are subject to state-specific shipping prohibitions. To ensure compliance with state laws, we sell these seeds on a case-by-case basis. Click here to learn more, or to request restricted seeds.
None of the seeds sold by Alchemy Works 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. Alchemy Works seeds cost a bit more because they come
from smaller farms, growers (including our own garden on occasion), and
wholesalers that adhere to sustainable and organic farming practices (whenever possible).
Unlike the wholesalers who supply highway beautification programs, Alchemy Works'
wholesalers supply growers, so germination rates are higher
and the seeds are stronger than the by-the-pound stuff.
To the best of our ability, Alchemy Works privelages seed suppliers that
preserve heirloom varieties, foster native species,
and work to protect Earth's biodiversity. We are committed to
supporting and promoting sustainable practices that use
the limited resources of our shared planet in a just,
environmentally-concious, and socially equitable way.
This has been a foundational practice since Alchemy Works opened in 2000
and that Anthony and Aleia are proud to uphold.
