About the course 

If you’ve ever dreamt of having your own herb garden, join this popular one-day introductory course and explore the medieval ideals of beauty, usefulness and pleasing aromas in the garden.

Find out what might work in your own space in both design and harvesting, whether a small urban setting or a large country garden. You'll explore use of colour, form, foliage texture, perfume and usefulness to gain the best effect.

You’ll get to know the herbs involved 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!
