Mediational/Herb Gardens

Mediational garden or herb garden, specialised medicinal gardens have been made at least since the Middle Ages, though plants were grown for medical purposes long before. A ‘simple’ is a herb used on its own in medical treatment. Many modern drugs are, of course, extracted from herbs and other plants.


The term “Pharmacognosy” was first coined by C.A. Seydler in 1815.  The term refers to the science or knowledge of drugs or medicines derived from natural sources.  The collection of plants for medicinal uses dates back to the ancient Sumerians in 2500 B.C.  It is well known that Indians/ China/ Native Americans provided the only medical remedies for the treatment of various diseases obtained by the early settlers, sailors when they visit these prospective countries.
