abbey garden

4

Medieval garden characteristics:

  • Gardens enclosed with wattle fences or quickthorn hedges
  • Trellis walkways and arbours providing shade and privacy
  • Raised beds to prevent plants becoming waterlogged
  • Grass treated as a flowery mead planted with low growing wild flowers
  • Turf seats usually built against a wall with flowers planted in the grass
  • Physic gardens with regimented beds of medicinal herbs
  • Orchards providing apples for the kitchen and for making cider
  • Fish ponds and stew ponds (where fish were purged of muddy water before cooking) to ensure a regular supply of protein during the many fast days of the Christian calendar
  • Dovecotes to provide pigeons for the kitchen, feathers for cushions and dung for fertilizing the garden
  • Pleasances, or ornamental parks for recreation, relaxation and sport
