Our Brewable Border
Designed by Anna Johnston and Charlotte Seers, Historic and Botanic Gardens Training Programme Trainees, awarded Gold
This space is inspired by the Victorian traditions of tea drinking that may have occurred at Audley End; its Kitchen Garden; and our own sense of calm, community and connection we find during our gardening tea breaks.
Designed to remind us of the versatility of plants when it comes to the preparation of teas and tisanes, the garden showcases the different parts of the plant that can be used for making concoctions, including foliage, roots and flowers.
Featuring a combination of wild, informal and potted plants, it encourages a shared escape within a sensory environment whilst highlighting the possibilities of creating a low maintenance, small space ‘drinkable’ garden at home.
