IncrEdiblesKew Gardens will be giving visitors the chance to experience the weird and wonderful world of edible plants this year with the IncrEdibles series. Making the most of the many edible species in the gardens, visitors will be inspired to broaden their knowledge on food and their relationship with what they eat. Food artists Bompas & Parr will also be helping out with their transformation of the Palm House Pond. With the pond turned into a giant fruit salad bowl, visitors will be able to sail on boats shaped like melons into the centre of the pond, where they'll discover a giant pineapple and a hidden banana grotto. Further highlights include The Global Kitchen Garden, which will feature more than 90 edible plants from across the globe; the Rose Garden Tea Party, one the Mad Hatter would be proud of with edible plants growing out of plates, goblets, dishes, jugs and platters; and the Picnic Garden, where picnickers can be educated on the ingredients used to make some of the nation's favourite tipples. The Orangery restaurant will also join in on the fun with a special foraged dinner, which features dishes such as grilled Kentish asparagus with wood sorrel flower petals and wild rose milk jelly with white and dark chocolate crumbs and candied pistachios.

 

About Kew Gardens (Royal Botanic Gardens)

Since the 18th century, these extensive gardens have been the spiritual home of botany in England, if not in Europe. From the cooling glades of the British Woodland Garden to the pulsating humidity of the exotic Palm House, the delicate beauty of the Rose Garden to the soothing tranquillity of the Waterlily House, at Kew you can witness over 40,000 plants embarking on a fascinating journey through their annual cycles - flowering and fruiting, growing and resting.
