Petersfield Physic Garden

This garden was given to the Hampshire Gardens Trust in 1988 and part of it is laid out with beds of herbs in a formal geometic pattern typical of 17th century physic gardens. It is set in an ancient walled burgage plot behind the High Street and had been planted in the style of John Goodyer, the distinguished 17th century botanist, who lived in Petersfield. Features include a small knot garden, a topiary walk in an orchard area under-planted with wild flowers, a rose bower with shrub roses and a sundial and terracotta urns. Many of the plants would have been grown in the 17th century.
