Ruth asks…

Where in Hamlet are there quotes about the rotting garden?

hamlet says something about a rotting garden that i cannot find in the play

GardenersCardiff answers:

I imagine you mean Act 1, Scene 2, the scene immediately after the King’s pronouncements at the end of the wedding, fairly near the start of the play:

How weary, stale, flat and unprofitable,
Seem to me all the uses of this world!
Fie on’t! Ah fie! ’tis an unweeded garden,
That grows to seed; things rank and gross in nature
Possess it merely. That it should come to this!
But two months dead: nay, not so much, not two:
So excellent a king; that was, to this,
Hyperion to a satyr; so loving to my mother
That he might not beteem the winds of heaven
Visit her face too roughly. Heaven and earth!
Must I remember?
