New planter outside the Museum with Halloween themeEver since we started looking into the theme of Halloween for the 2016 exhibition, Peter has been determined to grow some cabbages so we can pull them on Halloween. This idea tickled the rest of the Museum team and so we've made it happen (with a little help from Hedley and Steve, Boscastle builders). We look forward to seeing the plants grow and using them on October 31st and we also hope that this display will intrigue visitors and give them a little flavour of what to expect inside.
Eventually, we planted three different plants with associations with Halloween. We created signs using postcards from the 1900s as well. Top: cabbages. Middle: pumpkins. Bottom: hazel tree.
