Chelsea Physic Garden History Brochure

Chestertons is now close associates with London’s oldest botanic gardens - the Chelsea Physic Garden - established in 1673 as a teaching garden and for growing medicinal plants.

Over its long history, the Garden has been at the heart of groundbreaking research which has not only furthered our understanding of plants and herbal medicines, but has also contributed to life-saving treatments for diseases such as malaria.

The Garden has also had an impact on our everyday lives in less obvious ways, such as its connection to the invention of the Wardian Case, which allowed for the long-distance transportation of plants and ultimately enabled the growth of the tea industry in India.

As part of our partnership, Chestertons created the below history brochure, detailing the history, growth and developments related to the wonderful Gardens.
