When the Apothecaries founded the Garden in 1673 its microclimate was a big part of their decision. Warm air currents and its location on the bank of the Thames made it the perfect place to house their growing collection of plants.

Today the Garden still benefits from this microclimate and it is a big part of why so many plants can flourish here even where they are far away from their natural habitats.

To help us understand how environmental changes impact the Garden we record the weather conditions daily.
