Join the coven for a look at some potions plants in our Witches’ Garden!

Here’s a treat: a short video on magical plants with one of our botanic witches.



The Gardens are a place to enjoy the wonder and beauty of nature. The site will remain open over the coming weeks for those within 5km. Many of you will be too far away to visit but we will be sure to keep you updated with photos, videos, and stories from the Bots.

We will be posting more of these Magical Plants stories over the coming days, so stay tuned!
