Details

Follow Gnomus the giant gnome around the Temperate House as he shares stories about the amazing plant collection inside. Daily from May through to September 2018.

Meet Gnomus, a giant puppet who will lead you on a story-filled adventure through the world's temperate lands.

The last survivor of an ancient race, Gnomus is a font of knowledge. As 'caretaker of the earth', he's emerged from his underground home to check on the plants at the Temperate House.

In a gift to Kew, Gnomus is sharing special stories that show children how important it is to value and learn about some of the world's rarest and most endangered species.
