Grow Your Own Physic Garden...

Physic gardens were collections of healing plants grown by physicians and monks in ancient times. Plant your own using some of the herbs shown here. By investing a little time and the cost of seeds, you’ll have the makings of infusions, teas and balms. Choose a sunny spot with rich soil for your garden. Perennials will grow from season to season, while annuals must be reseeded or transplanted.
