Herb garden is open to all

Angus Herbal Medicine Clinic, located in Logie just outside Kirriemuir, will open its Medicinal Herb garden for two days in August.

This Herbalist’s garden is set in an 18th century walled garden and Victorian greenhouse within Logie’s organic farm. While primarily a teaching and learning garden, some herbs are of sufficient quantity to allow production of tinctures and teas to be used in the adjacent herbal clinic.

This physic garden has been designed using the classic knot garden style with box hedging and includes over 150 medicinal herbs. It is divided into eight rectangles, each containing herbs that have an affinity for a particular system of the body.

These include the heart and circulation, digestion, nervines (herbs to nourish the nervous system), women’s reproductive herbs, and immune, respiratory, and urinary herbs

Every herb is labelled with a brief description of actions to help novices learn more about this ancient art.

The garden will be open on Sunday, August 5 and Sunday, August 6 between 2 and 5pm.

Admittance is free and teas, plants and produce will be on sale.

To get to the garden from the A926 leaving Kirriemuir, fork left at Beechwood Place onto the single track road (or if approaching Kirrie take sharp left after “Welcome to Kirriemuir sign”. Then take the first left and follow signs to The Walled Garden.
