Scholars Work in Shakespeare’s Gardens

On Monday and Tuesday this week Inés, Nezha and Rhiannon spent 2 day working in the gardens of the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust (SBT) in Shakespeare's home town of Stratford-upon-Avon in Warwickshire. Here they learnt traditional planting techniques as they planted seasonal bedding and shade-tolerant perennials beneath the Mulberry trees in the gardens of Hall's Croft and New Place. The scholars also received tours of other SBT gardens including Anne Hathaway's Cottage and Shakespeare's Birthplace, and were treated to a sneaky peek of the new knot garden at New Place which will open to the public later this summer.
