The Garden Pictorial

The Midnight Apothecary

A Herbalist's Garden

This is the story of how a forlorn museum rooftop in South London was transformed into an abundant herbalist's haven and evening cocktail bar, offering a pocket of wilderness amidst the urban landscape.  The garden's structure comes from plants such as cardoon, angelica and fennel, interwoven with fragrant herbs such as salvias, lavender and rosemary.  Creator and gardener Lottie Muir focuses mainly on herbs and flowers to be used in her cocktail creations such as Acacia Blossom Gin, which are served at the Midnight Apothecary events.
