Lytes Cary Manor has garden enclosures in the Elizabethan manner, dating to 1907-20 by Sir Walter Jenner. The gardens were restored in the 1960s by the National Trust in the Jekyll tradition. The house was once home to Henry Lyte, a medieval herbalist, and the gardens include a herbal border.
England , Petersfield
Petersfield Physic Garden is situated behind the buildings on the north side of the High Street. It occupies the last remaining medieval burgage plot in the town and is still enclosed within stone walls. The garden contains many of the features that would have been found in a 17th-century gentleman's garden. All the plants, shrubs and trees featured in the garden were known in England in that time.
England , Stafford
The ruins of the castle lie to the west of the town of Stafford. In 1979 evidence of a 17th-century garden layout was found during an archaeological excavation (findings published 1999) by Stafford Borough Council. An inventory of 1537 refers to 'the supping place in the garden'. The Friends of Stafford Castle have recreated a medieval-style herb garden on the site.
