a Botanic garden Rooted in science


Welcome to our new and redesigned website! We’re adding content constantly, so be sure to check back often!

Discover a tranquil botanic garden. Recognised for our expertise in plant medicine and scientific research, Dilston Physic Garden is a 2-acre oasis of natural habitat featuring 700 European medicinal species, each accompanied by signboards with their up-to-date medicinal properties and mechanisms of action, all rooted in rigorous scientific evidence. Hosting specialised collections of medicinal plants, find clinically proven plants to help relieve anxiety, depression & insomnia and improve memory, mood & more when used as plant medicine.

Dilston is not just a garden to visit but a living physic garden and a charity devoted to education and scientific research on the therapeutic use of medicinal plants for health, medicine, and mental well-being.

An unusual botanic garden, breaking free from convention, its organic design provides space for relaxation and inspiration. The whole garden is lovingly cared for by volunteers, truly a garden for mind, body & spirit!

What's new

As we prepare up for our March opening, we eagerly anticipate the findings from our second ‘Memory Tincture’ trial, investigating the impact of three key medicinal plants on memory. Additionally, we are actively coordinating an upcoming ‘Memory Tea’ study. If you’re interested in participating in the tea study, feel free to reach out and get involved.

Don’t forget to check out our What’s On and Resources pages for the latest workshops and for posts to explore ways to effortlessly integrate medicinal plants into your daily routine.
