Remedies from the Physic Garden
That RBGE was originally founded as a Physic Garden in 1670 is well known, and James Sutherland’s Hortus Medicus Edinburgensis catalogues the quite extraordinary diversity of botanicals that were being nurtured for medicine making in Edinburgh at that time. What is less well known, is how these herbs were being compounded into remedies. With selected extracts translated from the earliest editions of the Edinburgh Pharmacopoeia, we will complete that missing link for the first time since the C17th. Taught by Catherine Conway-Payne and Johanna Lausen-Higgins.
