Herb and veggie garden featuring specimens from around the world at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden
Images from what they call the herb garden at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden today. It has herb and some veggie varieties from all over the world. And each plant variety has a name plate with the common and scientific name, its country of origin and its historical and/or current medicinal use. There are also annuals and perennials mixed in that bring in beneficial insects to help with pollination and organic disease control. There were thousands of pollinators - bees, wasps, flies - all over the garden.
