Urban Physic Pop-up Garden in Southwark

The Urban Physic Garden is a pop up experience based around medicinal plants, and is open in Southwark this summer.

"A physic garden is a place where plants with medicinal properties grow. For thousands of years people have been using plants to cure all kinds of ills. London’s first physic garden opened in 1673 – an enchanting walled garden in Chelsea where the city’s apothecaries tended exotic species from around the world. The garden then stretched right down to Thames, and both students and botanical curiosities would arrive by boat. Still open, it’s been a green-fingered physician’s dream for over 300 years."

When - 11th June - 15th August

Where - 100 Union Street, SE1 0NL
