Shakespearean Flowers

Marigold: In The Winters Tale, Shakespeare observes how the vivid orange flower 'goes to bed wi' the sun' and reopens in the morning.

Columbine: Symbolic of insincerity, it is given by Ophelia when driven to insanity by Hamlet.

Sweet Violet: Shakespeare describes the bent head of the 'nodding violet' in A Midsummer Nights Dream.

Tudor Herbs

Fennel: The Anise Flavour made it a valuable herb for sweet and savoury dishes in the Tudor Kitchen.

Winter Savoury: Familiar in Tudor mazes and knot gardens the leathery, slender leaves of this beautiful herb have a peppery flavour and a natural affinity with bean dishes.

Lemon Balm: The Tudors infused the leaves to give a citrus flavour to teas, used to ease anxiety and aid sleep.
