Tidying up the Museum garden

Tidying up the Museum garden

It has been a long summer and Joan’s Garden in front of the Museum has looked great for most of the year.  If you don’t know, this is a garden (paid for by the Friends of the Museum) where each plant has a sign next to it explaining its use in magic, herbalism or folkloric beliefs about it.  After several windy days in Boscastle, it desperately needed a tidy up.  The Museum Manager, Judith set to work this week with a little help from some very special people…

Above: the garden after, cut back and tidy for the winter ahead with around 100 daffodil bulbs planted for spring.

Judith was “helped” by Tom, the Museum dog (above) and Agnes Emily Hewitt now four months old (below).
