We hope to have our Anreg (Welsh for gift) shop open on-site for this season. Hiraeth (pronounced Hee-
rye-th) is a deep inborn sense of yearning for a place beyond this plane of existence. It really has no words in the English language to describe it. It is more of a deeper feeling. It is in the wind, the rocks, and the waves. It is nowhere and it is everywhere. It is perfect for our little place of connection and to enable guests to bring a piece home with them to keep that connection. Those who participate in any of our workshops or tours this season will receive 20% off their first purchase at Hieraeth. This shop will feature fresh produce, our farm fresh eggs, potted native plants, our wild teas, and arts and crafts work from local artisans.
As our inventory of species increases (especially our native plants!) it seemed it was time for an overhaul of our category arrangement. Since most customers want to know what conditions plants grow in to be sure they will succeed in the environments they will have when they get the plants home, we thought it pertinent to regroup our categories to include Prairie, Woodland, and Wetland areas. While this is still not perfect as some plants will cross over into multiple categories and there are definitely more than 3 environments, it does give one a much clearer idea of what plants may work best in the most common environments we have in our area. Prairie is generally drier (though there can be more moist pockets in some spaces), more open, sunny, and subject to the elements. Woodland is generally cooler, more protected, quite often shady (though there are some open woodland areas), and can vary from drier to more moist conditions depending on topography. Wetland is definitely moist, but can vary from
saturated ground, to banks and pond edges, to fully submerged and floating vegetation. It can also be shaded/protected all the way to full sun depending on different factors. Hopefully, this gives people a better frame of reference when deciding on which species to purchase. MM Gardens now has a ‘Misfits’ category as well which includes one-offs, discontinued products, and plants that may have a kink or some other oddity about the, but are perfectly healthy otherwise. It enables us to clear much-needed space and tidy things up a bit while giving customers a chance to get some cool plants at discounted prices! We have also opted to remove our ornamental category as really this seems redundant to us. I mean, any plant can be ornamental with the right placement!
As far as workshops and tours go, you can book anytime online, but please contact us in regards to dates and times since some events may be offered only once in a season,
multiple times, weekly, or even daily! From all of us at Medieval Manor Gardens we thank all of our clients and hope this will make your shopping journey a little easier!
