New Herbal Healing Garden


A new herbal healing garden is being developed which will pay homage to the ancient wisdoms of Sudeley’s former inhabitants. Lady Ashcombe has been leading the project, researching the vast knowledge of herbal healing from many cultures, stretching back in recorded history over 4000 years. Today the interest in natural remedies has been steadily re-emerging and Sudeley’s gardening team are very excited about the range of traditional plants they will be growing in the new garden.
Lady Ashcombe has been working with a professional group to develop a range of herbal cosmetic creams that will be exclusive to Sudeley, based on the latest research as well as traditional recipes and methods. The range will feature some of the herbs and plants that will be grown in the herbal garden and will be available in the gift shop later this season.
The Queens Garden at Sudeley is best known for its spectacular display of roses that are celebrated in Rose Week each summer. This year, there is the added celebration of the 150th anniversary of the planting of the magnificent double yew hedges that surround the Queens Garden, planted by Emma Dent, the Victorian Chatelaine at Sudeley.

I believe a lot in herbal remedies. They have helped me very much where prescribed medication has failed.
