Are you one of our southern hemisphere readers who's looking forward to Ostara? Whether you have a few containers on your patio full of herbs, a small patch of flowers, or -- if you're like me -- you're growing an abundance of veggies, fruit, herbs and everything else you can get your hands on, now is a good time to start thinking about what you're going to plant. Granted, you won't be able to actually stick anything in the ground yet, but it's a good idea to know what you're going to grow, and where you will put it. For those of us who follow nature-based belief systems, this planning can be part of the spiritual process each year.
When it comes to spring flowers, there's a long history of tradition. Flowers have often been connected with magic, in a variety of ways, so when you're planning your early gardens, be sure to read up on Spring Flower Magic
If you want to give your seedlings a jump start this year, make a Miniature Greenhouse
some time this month. Get your plants started now, and they'll be ready to go into the soil by Beltane!
