Get to know some of the favorite plants of the 17th century English botanist, herbalist, physician and astrologer who had a unique approach to understanding plants and diseases from an astrological yet scientific point of view.

HerbDay 2012 logoNick Culpeper was a 17th century English botanist, herbalist, physician and astrologer. He had a fascinating and unique approach to understanding plants and diseases from an astrological yet scientific point of view. Culpeper's success as an herbalist made him particularly critical of the Royal College of Physicians, and coinciding with the abolishment of the Censorship Law, compelled him to publish numerous books on herbal medicine, medical practice, diagnosing disease, midwifery, politics and more. Come hear about his controversial life and get to know a few of his favorite plants.
