Sir Thomas Browne’s plants: a garden trail
A new trail in the RCP garden of medicinal plants leads visitors around plants and flowers grown by the 17th-century physician and collector Sir Thomas Browne. Written by the RCP head gardener and horticultural curator, Jane Knowles, and based on research done by Dr Harriet Phillips of Queen Mary University of London, the trail accompanies the current exhibition ‘A cabinet of rarities’: the curious collections of Sir Thomas Browne.
