Fri, 2013-11-08 17:16

This week Collections Horticulturist, Carlos Magdalena, finalised the plants which will feature in the wreath this year. The collected sprigs and flowers are from specimens representing the UK Overseas Territories including: the Falkland Islands, Montserrat and St Helena, and are all grown on-site at Kew.

As well as the wreath which is laid at the Cenotaph, a second identical wreath is crafted and laid in Kew Gardens to commemorate the many members of the Kew Guild and staff who fell in the First and Second World Wars.
