The Art and Healing Power of Plants

This new exhibition at the Chelsea Physic Gardens features the works of the talented artists of the CPG Florilegium. Focussing on plants used to treat heart and lung conditions, the exhibition runs until 30th August in conjunction with the Royal Brompton and Harefield NHS Foundation Trust. Paintings are displayed throughout the botanic garden in Chelsea next to the living specimens. There are also 15 works displayed in the café of the hospital, allowing patients and visitors to benefit too. The image chosen to promote the exhibition is a painting of Colichicum autumnale by Helen Allen, CSBA founder and principal.
