Historic Life Weekend: Midsummer & Plant Lore

A special interest weekend at midsummer with talks and tours through our 6 historic gardens and displays to explore traditional ideas and uses around different herbs and plants.

Each of the gardens is set to the era of the home it surrounds. Within the gardens you will find the plants known at this point in time. Find out about plant-lore and what was particularly prized in lower status households through the ages.

Heritage seeds and herbs will be on sale in the Museum shop.
