In the Abbey Gardens this summer there are not just the formal flower beds carpeted with flowers.
There is also an educational display put on by Edible Abingdon which people are encouraged to try at the right time.
This section has clear labels for Thyme, Ruby Chard, and Red Currant.
A bit further along are Climbing French Beans, Marjoram, Mangetout Peas, and Autumn Raspberry.
Apothecary gardens were grown in the Middle Ages by Benedictine monks who studied plants and their therapeutic uses. So the herbs are very fitting for the Abbey Gardens.
