History's greatest playwright was also
History’s greatest playwright was also one heck of a gardener. The age of Elizabeth I provided William Shakespeare with a rich and varied plant palette, both from England’ s considerable bounty and foreign introductions. These he “planted” in his prolific contributions to English literature, and they still bloom today in language filled with plant lore and flower symbolism. Learn Elizabeth I’s role in the advancement of English horticulture and peruse Elizabethan garden elements including mounts and mazes, spouting sundials, fantastical topiary and the pleached bower to add to your garden. Explore some Tudor and Shakespearean gardens in the UK and the USA to visit for inspiration. Turns out, the world’s not only a stage, it’s also a garden!
