The Herb Garden can be discovered as you come out of Teulon Cottage. It’s filled with herbs and other useful plants and each plant has a story to tell. Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme are still common in cooking today. Foxgloves, feverfew and comfrey offer medicinal cures. Garlic, rue and hyssop have cleansing and protective properties. Absinthe, bergamot and yarrow are used for drinks of varying alcoholic potency. Orris, Rosa mundi and lavender provide sweet scented perfume. Rushes make rush lights for dark winter nights. Nearby, trees of historic local interest trace the progress of fruit growing in the Midlands.
