A physic garden is a type of herb garden with medicinal plants that later developed into botanical gardens as we know it. Modern botanical gardens were preceded by medieval physic gardens that originated at the time of Emperor Charlemagne. Gardens of this time included various sections including one for medicinal plants. Pope Nicholas V set aside part of the Vatican grounds in 1447 for a garden of medicinal plants that were used to promote the teaching of botany, and this was a forerunner to the University gardens at Padua and Pisa established in the 1540s.
Some of the earliest physic gardens included:
1334, Venice; and at Salerno, founded by Matthaeus Silvaticus
1544, Pisa, begun by Cosimo de’ Medici
1545, Padua
1547, Bologna, founded by Ghini
1560, Zurich, founded by Conrad Gessner
