Planting Mustard and Garlic: Day 1

Plant your own mustard and garlic while learning about their medicinal properties and uses. This is a drop-in event, but you must book a free general admission ticket to the Chelsea Physic Garden to attend.
Andrew Roberts


Learn how Mary Seacole used mustard plasters to treat soldiers in the 1850s, and about the medicinal properties of garlic. Once you've finished planting your own seeds, you’ll get to take these away with you to watch them grow at home.

The Chelsea Physic Garden is opening its doors free of charge exclusively for the Chelsea History Festival. Visit the oldest botanic garden in London, with around 5,000 different medicinal, herbal, edible and useful plants.
