Herbal workshops, walks and talks in Hertfordshire

Herbal  talks and herb events for 2023

If your local gardening group is looking for a speaker to talk about  herbs and medicinal plants, give Frances a call.


I have written a variety of talks/presentations on medicinal plants in the hedgerows; herbal infusions, decoctions and syrups; drugs derived from plants and plants used as medicines during both World Wars. I can also create a bespoke talk for your group if you have a herbal related topic or local herbal history that you would like to know more about.
