Around the World in 80 Plants

Saturday 25 September 12:00pm - 1pm

In celebration for the Chelsea History Festival we are very excited to welcome Author Jonathan Drori back to the Garden for this special talk relating to his new book, Around the World in 80 Plants.

Cannabis, Opium Poppy and Cacao may seem familiar but their plant- science, interwoven with history, culture, and folklore hold many surprises. Others, such as Iboga, Yam, and the Peacock Flower are much less well-known but have fascinating human connections.

Join author of Around the World in 80 Trees, Jonathan Drori, for a talk and Q&A with London’s oldest botanic garden. For this special talk and Q&A, Drori will focus on some of the medicinal plants found at Chelsea Physic Garden, which he explores in his upcoming book, Around the World in 80 Plants. Drori is known for sharing his scientific knowledge with humour and passion, and this evening will be a taster of what to expect in his new book.
