Kew Gardens celebrates landmark year

Published: Monday 5th of January 2009

London's Kew Gardens is set to host a number of events this year to celebrate its 250th anniversary.

The botanical attraction has announced a calendar of special events, with a Tropical Extravaganza planned for February.

Running from February 7th to March 8th, the Princess of Wales Conservatory will host a new display to bring some early spring cheer to visitors.

The display of orchids will celebrate the work of Charles Darwin who was one of the country's foremost scholars of orchids. Incidentally, the event coincides with the 200th anniversary of Darwin's birth.

Other special events include the blossoming of over five million bulbs in spring which will see the creation of a crocus carpet, multiple daffodils and snowdrops throughout the woodland area.

Conservation projects will be revealed to the public in the summer, granting the chance to learn more about the work undertaken to maintain the London attraction.
