The experience kicks off with an overview of the purpose of botanical gardens and a brief history of the Chelsea Physic Garden. As you tour the garden, learn about some of the fascinating plants: how to use them in your own garden, how to grow them, when the plant is at its best, points of interest, what to combine it with and more highlights. The experience will also cover how some of the various plants have been used and continue to be used in medicinal applications.
A stop at the Tangerine Dream cafe will offer refreshments and a chance to ponder the plants seen. You can expect to learn about botany, botanical garden history, plant history, and the many and varied medicinal qualities of various plants. This informative, relaxing and peaceful experience amongst wonderful trees, shrubs, herbs, and perennials will awaken your senses with its many colours, scents, and fabulous forms.
