A rare opportunity to go behind the scenes and discover where Kew specialists grow the plants for our ornamental displays

Join us in areas of the Gardens not normally open to the public and get to see our work behind the scenes.

Come and explore the nursery for an insight into the work of our horticulturalists.
You'll get to appreciate the care and attention given to nurturing the carnivorous plants, bromeliads, orchids and cacti that are later planted out in our displays.
Meet our expert staff and learn about the conservation work we do helping to save endangered species.
