It is inspired by early medieval gardens and reunites over 90 labelled plants - for medicinal use but also for subsistence and other applications, such as dye plants and cereals - that were grown and consumed or used in the Middle Ages. It offers parents a great opportunity to give initiate their children into medicine in the Middle Ages.
