The Barony of Ynys Fawr has its own Medieval Garden at the Royal Tasmanian Botanical Gardens (RTBG) in Hobart, Tasmania, Australia. The Medieval Garden is part of the Community Garden at the RTBG. The plants within the Medieval Garden are plants used in medieval times whether it be for food, as medicine, or for the dyeing of cloth, paper or other items, to give just a few examples.
Lord Anselm da Calabria and Lady Wenefrith Everett de Calabria are the Barony’s Keepers of the Medieval Garden.
The Medieval Garden started off as one plot (2 Dec 2014) now designated as Plot #1. On Thur 11 Jun 2015 two more plots were added to the Medieval Garden. One already has Silverbeat and Chives planted and growing in it (designated as Plot #2) while the other is fallow and known to be an area subject to being waterlogged at times (designated Plot #3). We welcome the addition of the two extra plots and the challenge of getting plants to grow and thrive in the waterlogged environment.
