This year we’ll be redeveloping our Blackford Glen Medicine Garden into distinct areas which represent systems of the body and corresponding medicinal plants which can be used to support those systems. We are mostly choosing to use plants which are native or naturalised in Scotland, with some commonly cultivated medicinal imports, and then also some threatened/ endangered plants like Black Cohosh (Aceta racemosa) and Pasque Flower (Anemone pulsatilla) which we really value and so will be growing ourselves.

After a few recent sessions the garden is starting to look more organised, and we can’t wait to get a whole load of new plants in soon. We’ll be using the garden as a teaching space, a stock area for making tinctures & infused oils and a generally therapeutic place for spending time in.
