Thursday 19th March, 11.30am-1pm

New for 2020, join Chelsea Physic Garden Head of Plant Collections, Nell Jones on a special spring tour.

Nell has spent over a decade either working or volunteering at the Garden and has led the horticultural team since 2017.

Her knowledge and passion for the world-renowned plant collections at the Garden is unrivalled, and her enthusiasm is contagious.

Nell’s tour will feature the usual ‘Behind the Scenes’ favourites, including the tool shed, the potting shed, and the historic boatyard – where the Worshipful Society of Apothecaries used to moor their barge after plant-finding expeditions along the river.

As this spring tour falls at the start of our busy season for propagating, we’ll be going behind the scenes to the seed room, where Nell will share the story of our Index Seminum – a seed exchange programme that operates between the Garden and approximately 368 other botanic gardens and universities in 37 different countries.

We propagate over 10,000 plants every year at the Garden and you’ll have the chance to see what’s growing in the propagation and pit glasshouse areas which are not usually open to the public.

Ticket price includes three-course lunch at the Physic Garden Café following the tour.
