Frequently Asked Questions

The Garden Journey Deck

  • Where is The Garden Journey deck produced?
    • We're proud to partner with U.S. based manufacturers that are dedicated to sustainable and responsible production practices.   
  • Is The Garden Journey produced sustainably?
    • All materials used to create The Garden Journey set are FSC® Chain of Custody Certified, meaning you can be confident that they were responsibly managed to comply with the highest social and environmental standards.  In addition, we worked exclusively with domestic partners to create The Garden Journey in order to minimize the carbon footprint of shipping.
  • Why does The Garden Journey only include 22 cards?
    • While “traditional” tarot decks often include 78 cards comprising the Major Arcana (22 cards) and Minor Arcana (56 cards), The Garden Journey includes the 22 cards of the Major Arcana, which begin with The Fool (Card 0) and end with The World (Card 21). We chose to focus on the Major Arcana in order to center the The Garden Journey deck on those cards whose storytelling properties translated most gracefully into the language of flowers.
  • How large are the cards in The Garden Journey deck?
    • The velvety soft cards of The Garden Journey deck measure 3.5” by 5”.

The Art of The Garden Journey

  • How did each of the cards get matched to a flower?
    • Our “translation” between each of the Major Arcana cards and flowers is based on kindred meanings between each archetype and the flower that most embodies its meaning, as suggested by the language of flowers.
  • Where did the art for The Garden Journey come from?
    • All of the illustrations of the flowers and plants depicted in The Garden Journey deck are original works, done in watercolor, by Joanne Yun. Joanne also created the hand-marbled papers which are featured as details on each card.

Using The Garden Journey

  • Can I use The Garden Journey on my own?
    • As we like to say - this is a journey undertaken for yourself, by yourself. While some people prefer to “get their readings done”, we do our own readings as part of a meditative practice.
  • Where can I go to learn more about tarot?
    • Our Guide Book provides an overview of the origins and practice of tarot, but there’s so much more out there!  A few thoughtful and beautiful tarot resources we continually return to are Jessica Dore, Laetitia Cartomancy, and the Tarot book (Taschen).
