Dedication
Dedicated to Sir Hans Sloane in gratitude for his shrewd foresight over the terms and conditions of the indenture of 1722, without which the Garden would not be here at all.

The date that we now trace as the origin of the Chelsea Physic Garden, 1673, was a crucial time for its founders, the Worshipful Society of Apothecaries of London.

Book description
In the heart of London, beside the Thames not far from the site of the world famous flower show, there is another magical garden. It has been there for over three hundred years and is now the calmest corner, and the most valuable four acres of freehold, in fashionable SW3. It has been the scene of some of the most important developments in the history of horticulture, medicine and twentieth-century agriculture. This book tells it fascinating story.
