If you’ve ever dreamt of having your own herb garden why not come on this new one day introductory course and explore the medieval ideals of beauty, usefulness and pleasing aromas in the garden. Take the opportunity to learn what might work in your own space from both the point of view of design and harvesting. Examples of growing both decorative and useful herbs for small urban settings or larger country gardens will offer inspiration for planting schemes. Whether your
aim is a wildflower garden having a natural appearance, an ordered knot garden or a selection of potted herbs to brighten and transform a balcony or patio, there will be something for everyone. Getting to know the herbs involved will be through images, herbarium samples and an all-important walk to the Queen’s Garden in Kew to see the plants growing and literally smell the roses!
