25 January - 2 February 2020
Heralding Spring week isn’t far off at Chelsea Physic Garden and runs 25 January – 2 February. Two events particularly piqued our interest this year. Firstly there’s a talk on The Essence of Snowdrops with Saskia Marjoram, who will be speaking about wellbeing through plants, particularly the power of snowdrops for healing on 2 February. A highly experienced gardener and formerly a florist to the Prince of Wales, Saskia has been making flower essences since 2003 and will be sharing her wisdom on the tiny flower. There’s also Winter Flower Pressing on 31 January where you can learn to press specimens from the Physic Garden’s herbarium. The flower press if yours to take home so you can learn the technique and then continue to press flowers throughout the year. Book ahead.
