Mr Craig Jamieson, a landscape gardener armed with a diploma in horticulture, plans to market the Biblical seeds within a special promotional box. From his base in Ayrshire, they will then be distributed through Cathedral shops and assorted bookshops. "The Bible is full of plant stories for people, and they

"There is a great potential to bring Bible stories to life in the garden it illustrates a Biblical point. Poeple go all the way to the Holy Land to witness the Bible, but they could as easily go to their garden".
Coriander is mentioned in Exodus, and The Parable of the Sower appears in Matthew 13.
