Unfortunately, government social distancing measures mean that this event has been canceled. We hope to reschedule for 12th August 2020. If you would like to re-book for this date or discuss a refund on your ticket please contact [email protected]

Alternatively, if you would like to consider the price of your ticket as a donation to the ongoing work of the Chelsea Physic Garden during this difficult time we would be very grateful for your gift.


Can a food be a medicine? Can a poison be a medicine? Explore a brief history of medicine and find out about the amazing power of plants to heal and soothe. We will show you how to make your own natural and low-cost remedies to tackle spring ailments and plant a mini medicinal garden to take-away.

There’ll also be a chance to explore our medicinal plants, edible and poison beds, and other fascinating areas of the Garden.

For ages 7+
