Description - Virgins, Weeders and Queens by Twigs Way
Women are at the forefront of garden design and the horticultural world. This work ranges from the virgins perched on turf seats in medieval illuminations and the weeding women of the Tudor royal garden to queens who introduced new plants to Britain and herb wives who had to dodge accusations of witchcraft because of their arcane knowledge.
