Healing poems inspired by healing plants in the Physic Garden at Hellens Manor

In 2016 Ledbury Poetry Festival commissioned a poem by Adam Horovitz, who was Herefordshire poet in residence at the time, inspired by the Physic Garden at Hellens Manor. His poem, February in the Physic Garden, inspired a botanica of contributions from poets all over the world. Poems about Henbane, Heart’s Ease, Lily of the Valley, Wolfbane, Corncockle and Comfrey to name but a few. This rich and varied collection led to an anthology, published by Palewell Press. Join us for the launch, hear a cornucopia of poets read and celebrate the healing powers of mother nature!With Adam Horovitz and contributor poets
