The plants in this imaginary garden are representative of the different parts of a symbolic medieval garden: garden of medicinal plants, garden of aromatic plants.

In French, garden of : magic plants, textile plants, condiments, pulses and green vegetables.

This symbolic garden was created with pictures from the medieval garden of Salagon, which was conceived by Pierre Lieutaghi for the Musée-Conservatoire ethnologique de Haute-Provence, in Mane near Forcalquier (France)

Pierre Lieutaghi's books (Garden of knowledge, garden of history and The garden of good herbs) often inspire the comment on each plant. The sayings come from the Platearius, the Book of simple medicines.
