In medieval times, the hortus conclusus was an enclosed garden where flowers, food plants and medicinal herbs were cultivated.
Similar to a library, it was found in monasteries or cloisters, and served as a repository of knowledge, as well as a place of refuge for people, plants and wild creatures.
