Spice Garden

Spices comprise the aromatic parts of tropical plants or the dried seeds or fruit of temperate plants traditionally used to flavour food. Some spices come from the bark like Cinnamomum verum (cinnamon) or roots like Curcuma longa (turmeric) but the majority are seeds like Ammomum subulatum (cardamom) or dried fruits like Piper nigrum (pepper). Many spices have antimicrobial properties that help fight infections and enhance our immune system. This garden highlights the most common spices found in the Indian kitchen.
