Mr Monkey visits the Chelsea Physic Gardens, 29th April

"This is the place, even if it isn't the date"

Mr Monkey outside the Swan Street entrance of the Garden Mr Monkey looking at the lemon tree beside the greenhouses

Mr Monkey scurried along Swan Walk until he came to a doorway in the wall around the garden. A plaque with the inscription Hortus Botanicus Societas Pharmaceuticæ Lond: 1686 confused him slightly as he knew that the Garden has been here since 1673, when the Society of Apothecaries of London decided they needed a garden where their apprentices could grow medicinal plants. Inside the Garden he was surprised to find a lemon tree growing beside one of the oldest greenhouses in the country.
