Thursday, July 14, 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm – Elizabethan Herbs and Herb Gardens

Welcome to the world of Elizabethan gardens.  Plimoth Plantation invites you to join Christina Stapley (at left, below) and spend the afternoon of Thursday, July 14, from 1 – 4, looking at images of gardens and getting weird and wonderful advice from period gardening books.  We’ll also take a walk through Plimoth Plantation’s gardens touching and smelling herbs and learning about the propagation of seeds.  You’ll even have time to sketch some planting ideas for your own garden.  Christina has been growing, studying and working with herbs for over 35 years.  She has a degree in Phytotherapy and practices as a medical herbalist.  She has created several herb gardens, and her own garden, containing over 300 herbs, has been featured on television.  She has written articles on herbs for publication in Britain, Canada and the United States, and is the author of four adult and one children’s book.  The fee is $60 for Plimoth Plantation members, $75 for nonmembers.  To register, visit, or call 508-746-1622.
