Biblical gardens are cultivated collections of plants that are named in the Bible. They are a type of theme garden that botanical gardens, public parks, and private gardeners maintain.[1][2][3][4] They are grown in many parts of the world with examples in diverse places, including Japan's Seinan Gakuin University Biblical Botanical Garden and the Missouri Botanical Garden in the United States.[5]

A list of plants in the Bible includes species of plants mentioned in the Jewish and Christian scriptures. Other plants with associations to the themes and subjects of the Bible are sometimes also included, especially in areas with different climates. Additionally, some gardens exhibit objects in order to illustrate Biblical stories or to demonstrate how people lived in Biblical times.
