There are many benefits to growing your own medicinal garden. Some benefits include that it's always fresh and available for use to you, you can control what chemicals are used, it can save you money over the long run, and tending to the garden can be a great stress relief. Growing you own garden allows for you to choose what species and benefits you are interested in, and can also allow you to grow species not commercially available in your area.

This thread is aimed to teach all of us more regarding medicinal benefits of the garden, may that be herbs, fruit, vegetables and much more. If you can grow it, you can use it.
I try to include warnings, but kindly use your own head to decide what is safe and what isn't. If you have a reaction, seek professional medical help. And whilst a medicinal garden can aid in a lot of things, it's not exact science.
