A new herb garden with lavender, rosemary, thyme, sage and other classics has been planted near the ruins and the church.
Health care played an important role in all medieval abbeys and convents. The infirmarius cultivated medicinal plants in the herb garden, dried them and made potions and salves from them because this enabled him to preserve them for longer. In the herb garden were also all kinds of flowers such as lilies, roses and irises. The flowers attracted the swarms of bees which lived in the hives of the abbeys. Indeed, around 1100 honey was the main sweetener. The bees also produced the necessary wax for the abundant candlelight in the church (not in the living areas where they were very frugal with candlelight). Today, there are also hives on the other side of the garden at St. Peter's Abbey. They do not belong to monks, but to the World of Kina.
