The Royal College of Physicians is celebrating the 500th anniversary of its founding, and the 400th anniversary of the publication of the world's first national pharmacopoeia in 2018.
The medicinal garden will be at its best, with special trails to highlight plants used by Dr William Harvey who discovered the circulation of the blood in 1628. The plants used to make medicines in 1618, in the Pharmacopoeia Londinensis beds will be highlighted, and a Florilegium with paintings of these plants will be for sale.
The Garden Fellows will give tours throughout the day, on the 1,100 plants connected to medicines worldwide. A beautiful and educational garden.
