The Orchard Plant Library is situated near the Barn Garden and set out in a grid system which holds more than 1200 different varieties of mainly herbaceous plants, serving as an interactive catalogue and community of plants that can be walked through and studied from all angles. Varieties and species can be compared, and combinations of form, texture, foliage and flower can be observed and appreciated.

Lunch will be at a venue nearby.
