Here at Kew we're passionate about protecting and understanding pollinators. Why not show your support for the week by taking the time to see the process of pollination in action at Kew, or closer to home in your own garden?
In 2011 seed I collected from Wollemi pines growing at Kew were germinated in our Arboretum nursery, producing dozens of seedlings. Now, two years, on we have lots of new young plants to add to our collections.
We've had an interesting day today; not only have we spent most of the day photographing willow artist Tom Hare and his team (a joy in itself), but we've had to dodge thunder, lightning, heavy rain and then bright, fiercely hot sunshine.
