Herbs, vegetables and fruit were cultivated in different areas of the site. A herb garden was probably located close to the infirmary. Infirmary gardens provided medicinal herbs. Orchard and kitchen gardens provided fruit, vegetables and herbs used in preparing meals. 

See the main section Priory Gardens for a description of the recreated herb garden, its history, layout and contents.
