GREEN-THUMBED VIC­TO­RI­ANS

The Hamilton Spectator - - LOCAL -

It’s a busy time for He­len Sluis at Dun­durn Cas­tle’s gar­den. With the re­cent rains, pre­par­ing the gar­den for this year’s crop is about two weeks be­hind. This is the only time gar­den demon­stra­tors can wear their reg­u­lar mod­ern clothes since they have to be in pe­riod cos­tume most of the time. The many va­ri­eties of the fruits, veg­eta­bles and herbs grown in the gar­den are con­sis­tent with the his­tor­i­cal pe­riod of Dun­durn Cas­tle.
