Walderton House

The house from Walderton was built in the early-mid seventeenth century. The garden would have been mainly for vegetables, fruit, herbs and livestock. However, at this date and social level some plants were beginning to be grown for their aesthetic qualities. Lilies, Primroses and gillyflowers in the borders – the very first beginnings of decorative planting and display towards the public face of the garden.

By the 17th century a wider range of vegetables was available. As new varieties of brassicas were grown, the older practice of cultivating edible weeds declined.
