The Apothecary’s Rose is in the medicinal bed of the walled garden herb beds.
It is growing amongst plants used by monks for their healing qualities. Appreciated for the beauty of it’s flowers, then as now, it was an invaluable resource for health and wellbeing. Today western herbalists often think of Rose tincture as a hug in a bottle – one of the best cordial herbs.
There are other cordial herbs growing in the walled garden at Chadkirk.
Rose, pot marigold and elecampane have been cultivated for many centuries
and used to gladden the heart.
