The “Jardin des plantes” in Montpellier, created by Pierre Richer de Belleval in 1593 to teach "simples" to the medical students, is the oldest botanical garden in France. This book written by renowned specialists in the plant world and illustrated with over two hundred photographs recounts its history and explores the outstanding plants - succulents, medicinal plants, Far Eastern plants, etc. - as dictated by seasons and places.
