Crystals For The Garden

Welcome to my article all about crystals for the garden!

Before I get into the specific crystals that are best for your garden and plants, first I’ll discuss the benefits of adding crystals to your garden and the different ways you can place them around and throughout your plants.

Benefits of Adding Crystals to Your Garden

Crystals are beautiful stones that are said to provide benefits to health and wellbeing.

You can put them anywhere in your home, but the garden is an ideal place to display them.

Here are some ways crystals can enhance your outdoor areas:

Added Aesthetic

Crystals come in a variety of colors and textures. They catch the light perfectly when placed in an outdoor setting.

You can include them in your flower beds to add the perfect hues.

Consider including crystals that provide the perfect complement or contrast to the color of your blooms.

Adds a Positive Energy

Various crystals are said to bring different kinds of energy into their surroundings.

They can be used to improve health, invigorate the spirit, ward off negative energy, increase positivity and promote healing.

Research carefully to determine which will work best in your gardens (we go through some of the best for gardens below!)

Once placed among your greenery, crystals will infuse the area around them with the powers and energy they offer.

This can benefit you when you are gardening, but they will be even more beneficial to the plants around them.

For instance, a tree agate crystal promotes abundance so it will help weak plants grow stronger. Onyx and dark colored crystals are said to keep pests away.

Brings Harmony to the Garden

Different stones represent the four elements on the earth; fire, water, air and earth. The right combination will bring balance and harmony to the garden.

This will be optimal for the health of the plants, and it will make the garden a soothing place to be.

Once your garden is infiltrated with crystals, you may use it as a place for quiet meditation.

Helps Butterflies

Crystals’ shiny surfaces attract heat. This makes them an ideal landing pad for butterflies looking to dry dew off their wings.

Where/How to Place Crystals in Your Garden

There are different schools of thought when it comes to where and how to place crystals in your garden.

Some prefer to place them near the roots of plants so they can absorb the energy.

Others make a shallow hole next to the plant and bury the crystal there so it will come in direct contact with the roots.

Others will place their crystals around with an aesthetic in mid. They may use them to form decorative patterns throughout the garden or they may place them in bird baths and fountains.

You could also color co ordinate your crystals with the colors of your plants and flowers, or even hang them off tree branches for gorgeous light-catching accents throughout your garden.
