Plants, People and the Products of War: a Centenary Tribute Featuring a selection of artefacts, photographs and letters from Kew's varied collections, Plants, People and the Products of War: a Centenary Tribute at Kew Gardens provides a view into Kew's involvement in the First World War. The small exhibition will include coverage of personal stories of Kew staff, the rise of women gardeners who replaced men at war, and an array of weird and wonderful plant materials as 'products of war'.

 

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.
