As a result of the Coronavirus situation, the Physic Garden is closed to the public until further notice. The gate will be unlocked for essential maintenance only.
The Physic Garden lies within the grounds of the former Hitchin Museum at Paynes Park, Hitchin. It is maintained by volunteers. It is divided into four sections: Household; the William Ransom border; External Ailments; Internal Ailments.
Some of the plants in the garden are toxic, do not touch or consume any of them. They can cause allergic reactions, irritate the skin and eyes or make people sick. Please supervise children when visiting.
There are red warning signs in the garden reminding visitors not to touch any of the plants.
