Life in the day of an 18th Century City garden

This lively musical is a great resource for school gardening projects and the study of food chains and life processes.

It gives pupils an insight into the work of Thomas Fairchild, an 18th century plantsman who cultivated tropical plants brought back from Sailors’ explorations abroad. We meet him and his young apprentices in his City of London nursery where there is great excitement because he has just cross-pollinated a Carnation and Sweet William to produce a brand new species of plant called a ‘Mule’!
Meanwhile busy Minibeasts are recycling organic waste to fatten up veggies for the cooking pot. Spud, a tough potato, quickly escapes to hide among the tropical plants in the hothouse! After their hard day’s work, the apprentices go scrumping for apples down by St Paul's. They are looking forward to potato stew and apple pie for supper!

Eleven songs and dances explore a wide range of musical styles including folk, rock ‘n roll, blues, nursery Rhymes and Latin American.
