The word ‘Witch’ is an old Celtic word meaning ‘a person who heals using plants’. Therefore The Witches Garden is a place where you can find all the plants you would need for healing much like an out door Pharmacy.
The Witches Garden contains common and unusual plants and is place where you can discover how they have been used for healing.
The Witches Garden is set behind the Witch’s cottage and is part of Riversong House gardens. Entrance to the Witches Garden is through a Fairy Tale life size witch’s cottage, designed to look as if the witch has just stepped outside. You are welcome to look around the shelves amongst the bottles of lotions and potions, there is even a broomstick collection.
Through the back door you will find the Witches Garden where all the plants are tagged so you can enjoy a self guided tour. If you would like more information on the plants and how they can be used then you can find sheets of information on sale in the gallery.
