The plants in the Herb Garden have been chosen with the founder of the Bergius Botanic Garden, P. J. Bergius, in mind. As a distinguished physician he published Materia Medica in 1778. This was a kind of pharmacological handbook presenting medicinal herbs known at that time, together with their characteristics and use. The Herb Garden is made up of a selection of the plants described in Materia Medica and various plants used for dyeing.
