Nurturing Victorian values.
Gardeners at St John's House, in Coten End, came up with the idea of planting vegetables which would have been grown and eaten during the Victorian era.
So far, only rhubarb has been planted. But more crops will be sown as the year progresses.
Heritage worker Jo Rice said: "This is the brainwave of one our gardeners, Pete Jones.
"I am sure the grounds of the house must have contained a kitchen garden at some point, although we don't know if would have been in the same place as ours."
The new garden complements the museum's allotment display.
