Herbs And Plants
I started to look around the garden to see what Herbs I had growing. The first is the traditional garden Mint.
In the distant past before medicine people used herbs, plants, flowers, and roots for traditional remedies. over time we have lost the art of using garden plants in this way.
The Monasteries and Nunneries used to grow herbs for medicine and for food. The Apothecary used the plants and herbs grown in the monastery garden.

The walk and workshop runs from 1030am to 1 pm, and tickets cost £35 including taking home remedies from the workshop. Rachels website address is www.heathcoteherbs.co.uk with details of tickets there.
A garden can be beautiful and functional too for growing herbs and flowers.
