Kew Gardens - in photographs

THIS year (2009), Kew celebrates 250 years as a botanical garden. Today, not only is it a global centre for research on plants and fungi, it also houses the Earth’s largest botanical and horticultural collections. It’s also rich in history.

The gardens cover an area of over 300 acres on the south bank of the Thames in south-west London.
