Re: [SCA-Herbalist] Historical Garden Design
- Check out The Complete Book of Herbs and Spices by Sarah Garland. She has
a lot of stuff on formal herb gardens (some of it period plus some lovely
pictures). It should be a good starting text.

Medieval Gardens might be available to you, but here's the link:
Penelope Hobhouse's _Plants in Garden History_ I know has some material
on Spanish gardens, as does Christopher Thacker's _The History of
Gardens_. You definitely want to try to get your hands on:
_The Islamic garden._ edited by Elisabeth B. MacDougall and Richard
Ettinghausen. Dumbarton Oaks Colloquium on the History of Landscape
Architecture (4th : 1974). Washington : Dumbarton Oaks, Trustees for
Harvard University, 1976..
