Sitting on the banks of the River Thames is a four acre site that is home to more than 5,000 species of plants from around the world.
The Chelsea Physic Garden in London is a secret garden originally established by the Apothecaries in order to grow medicinal plants. Nowadays, it’s bursting with edible and useful medicinal plants, and the gardens are open to the public to explore.
