These illegal plants, considered the most dangerous or sought-after, grow inside cages. Yet it’s easy to see you can find equally dangerous plants in your own garden at home… The Collection' Archives". Society of Apothecaries. Archived from the original on 30 October 2014 .

You could find botanical gardens across Old-Regime France. Louis XIV issued an edict in 1707 “that each medical faculty was to have a professor of botany and an associated botanical garden” (McClellan 2004: 73). Archived copy" (PDF).

This is vital to the development of medicine as a practice. Beware What You Touch… McClellan, James E. (2004), ‘André Michaux and French Botanical Networks at the End of the Old Regime’, Castanea, Southern Appalachian Botanical Society, pp. 69–97.The Apothecaries Act 1815 gave the Society the power to license and regulate medical practitioners throughout England and Wales. The Society retained this role as a member of the United Examining Board until 1999; the Society could license doctors thereafter, but did so rarely since the dissolution of the United Examining Board.

When the General Medical Council was established by statute in 1858, the LSA became a registrable qualification. From 1885, the examination included surgery, obstetrics and gynaecology, which were required by law following the Medical Act of 1886, and in 1907 the title was altered by parliamentary act to LMSSA to reflect this. The Society ceased to be recognised by the General Medical Council as a provider of primary medical qualifications in 2008, although it had rarely issued any licences since 1999, the year the United Examining Board was abolished. The Society has been teaching and examining aspects of medicine for over 400 years and this is something for which we are very proud. With our current portfolio of diplomas including the Diploma in Medicine in Conflict and Catastrophe, which we have taught and examined for the last 30 years, we know that that the DTM&H will be a natural partner for us. So take care of the plants in your garden. Learn about their properties and what they need to thrive. Finally, be absolutely 100% positive that you’ve got the right plant before you try to use it as anything other than a precious garden ornament… Jones, Roger (2006), ‘Apothecaries, physicians and surgeons’, The British Journal of General Practice, 56 (524), pp. 232-233.

Having sought autonomy for many years, the apothecaries finally separated from the Grocers' Company on 6 December 1617 when they were granted a royal charter by James I. [3] During the remainder of the 17th century its members (including Nicholas Culpeper) challenged the College of Physicians members' monopoly of practising medicine. In 1704, the House of Lords overturned a ruling of the Queen's Bench in the " Rose case", which effectively gave apothecaries the right to practice medicine, meaning that apothecaries may be viewed as forerunners of present-day general (medical) practitioners or family physicians. [3] I hope that you enjoy setting up an Apothecary garden. I have not done it as a complete project but I have grown many herbs and edible plants in my own garden and that is an option too. Simply grow a few apothecary garden plants among your existing garden plants and harvest them as appropriate.
