The gardener and apothecary John Parkinson (1567-1650) received the title of Royal Apothecary from King James I. Later, Charles I appointed him as his chief botanist. “Throughout his long working life, John Parkinson earned his living and reputation as an apothecary, preparing and dispensing plant-based and other medicines from his shop on Ludgate Hill, as well as growing and cultivating the plants that were the essential tools of his trade on a substantial plot in Long Acre near Covent Garden, further outside the London city walls to the west.”(Jill Francis, John Parkinson: Gardener and Apothecary of London, p. 229)

“Parkinson’s ‘Theatrum’ was the largest herbal in English to date; it was also the last great medicinally-based plant study, by an author who thought of himself as first and foremost an apothecary. Altogether 2,716 woodblocks were individually cut for this massive herbal, which describes more than 4,000 plants, most of them with medicinal properties. Parkinson had given notice of his intention to compile an herbal in his 'Paradisi in sole Paradisus terrestris' of 1629, but was delayed by the publication of the second Johnson edition of 'Gerard's Herball' in 1636. This delay meant that Parkinson's work had time to grow much larger than originally planned, and on publication it included about 1,000 more plants than Gerard’s, and describes many species not previously recorded.”(Tomasi, Oak Spring Flora, p. 160)

“[The herbal] was a monumental work drawing on Parkinson's 50 years of experience of growing and working with plants... Although working within a traditional genre, Parkinson's great herbal was firmly rooted in the new empirical methods of scientific observation and experiment…

“According to Parkinson, [earlier writers of herbals, such as William Turner] presumed a knowledge of the new plants arriving from overseas - often as little more than seeds, roots or dried specimens -but they cannot possibly have understood or seen for themselves the nature of the plant. As he writes elsewhere, 'some of these errors are ancient, and continued by long tradition, and others are of later invention, and therefore more to be condemned'. Parkinson, on the other hand, actually took the seeds, bulbs and roots and planted them in his own garden in Long Acre to observe how they grew and what they looked like. Some he received via fellow gardeners: for instance, his friend John Tradescant sent him a root of Indian Moly to plant in his garden. On another occasion, in 1608, Parkinson commissioned the plant hunter William Boel to seek out for him new species of plants while travelling in Spain and he returned with over 200 different kinds of seeds. Parkinson wrote that 'by sowing them [I] saw the faces of a great many excellent plants'. It was in this way, by careful scientific method, that he built up his extensive knowledge of plants and flowers which he then applied to both his work as an apothecary and to his gardening…

“[By the late 16th c.], curious and extraordinary plants were arriving on English shores from all over the world. In 1597, John Gerard described many plants in his Herball that he had obtained from 'forren places: including ginger 'digged up' from 'Domingo in the Indies'; tulips, that 'strange and forrein fl.oure: from the Middle East; crocuses from Spain and Italy; potatoes and tobacco from the Americas.

“But just three decades later, John Parkinson writes of Gerard that 'since his dates we have had many more varieties than he ever heard of ... as may be perceived by the store I have here produced'. Already, the choice of plants available to the apothecary and to the gardener was far greater than it had been at the end of the previous century, and Parkinson saw it as an obligation to pass on his new-found knowledge through his books: 'For I have always held it a thing unfit, to conceal or bury that knowledge God hath given, and not to impart it'.”(Jill Francis, “John Parkinson: Gardener and Apothecary of London”, in “Critical Approaches to the History of Western Herbal Medicine”, Ch. 12, p. 229-243).
