Welcome to our herb and medieval flowers page.
What is an “herb”?
It is hard to define what is thought of as an herb as modern day’s limited conception of this term has led to a changing understanding of it, many people believing it to mean a limited range of plants used for culinary or medicinal purposes only.
We grow a variety of perennial herbs chosen for their scent, culinary uses or medicinal properties. As well as being useful plants they also appeal to all of the senses; touch, smell, sound, sight and taste and thus play a vital role in the garden.
Herbs have been used throughout the ages all over the world with their popularity waxing and waning as garden trends change. However I think that no garden is complete without these wondrous plants included in the planting schemes. With this in mind I have also added some of the flowers and wild flowers that have been referred to as herbal, many of which can be traced back to medieval times and before. They are invaluable for attracting beneficial insects and pollinators to the garden too.
