Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew

The Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, has the largest and arguably most famous collection of living plants of any garden in the world, and a publishing arm to match.

Kew’s titles include books on botanical art, photography and horticulture, as well as scientific journals, floras, checklists, field guides and illustrated botanical monographs. Plant science, horticulture, conservation and ecology, and the history of botany are among the many subjects - aimed at both scientists and a wider public.

The Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, was founded in 1840, although its origins can be traced back earlier, and has 30,000 plant species and one of the world’s largest herbarium collections, with more than seven million specimens. UNESCO designated Kew Gardens a World Heritage Site in 2003.

Kew is also home to one of the largest compost heaps in Europe, made from green and woody waste collected from the gardens and manure from the Household Cavalry’s stables.
