Very cool link, thanks to Unlocked Wordhoard: The Medieval Garden Enclosed, the blog of the Met's Cloisters Museums & Galleries. This brand-new blog seeks to "explore the role of plants and gardens in medieval life and art, learn how to find and grow medieval herbs and flowers, discuss the long histories of many familiar garden plants, discover which roadside weeds were once valued medicinals, and encounter legendary plants like the mandrake".

This will be VERY helpful as I revise novel #3 (which is set partially in a medieval monastery) and will be incredibly interesting to compare medieval herbal use with the Roman we learn about in In Hortum.

A cornucopia of goodness!
