Your Medieval Herber contains plants that were used in the Middle Ages for food, medicine, paints, and other household purposes. Herb and pleasure gardens – herbers – were nearly always rectangular and raised, as your garden is. Plants were not grouped by type (i.e., "flower," "tree," or "shrub"), but by use; there were plants for “kitchen and seasoning," "vegetables and salads," "brewing," "medicinal," and "magical/religious."
The National Parenting Center's Seal of Approval for the Holiday 2005 Testing Period has been awarded to the Medieval Herber!
"When you create a seed kit for kids one of the most important factors to consider is whether the results (i.e. sprouts) appear quickly. Patience grows thin when you are 4 years old. DuneCraft delivers the goods by providing seeds that take root very quickly along with a great lesson in herbology to boot. Now, medieval herbs are probably not listed in the curriculum of too many preschools, but understanding how herbs have always been important whether for cooking or medicines. Great for classes or home schoolers and as a bonus, all the herbs are edible." The National Parenting Center
