From peony to poppy, and Solomon's seal and columbine to lily and iris, this illustrated book draws together those species of flowers - pure in colour and beautifully scented - that grew in medieval times and still grow today. Passing through the seasons, the book features gardens in Britain and elsewhere in Europe that can be traced back to medieval times. It details the purpose of gardens in those times, the types of plants grown, and the medicinal aspects, and also has a chapter on how to grow the individual flowers today. Garden plans and plant sources complete the book.
