A true observation laboratory, the Nine Squares Garden hosts a three-year vegetal exhibition in order to show what could have been “green experimentation” in the Middle Ages. It is a glance at medieval gardens and more precisely at botanical and gardening questions, that is to say on the history of plants and the symbols they embody.
Since 2004, four exhibitions have taken place:
- Season 1- 2004-2007:
Hildegarde de Bingen Medicine Secrets
- Season 2 – 2007-2010:
Plant colours – Coloured plants.
- Season 3 -2010-2013:
Magic Plants, powers, symbols and properties.
- Season4 – 2013-2016:
Symbolic plants, signs and emblems.
