Plants under the misty spray in Kew's tropical nursery
The Tropical Nursery at Kew provides a home to the permanent tropical and temperate collections. It comprises 21 different climate zones and holds an estimated 35,000 plants.

The Nursery is split into four teams that each have a specialism; orchids, moist tropical, cacti and succulents, and temperate and island flora. The Tropical Nursery is normally off limits to the public so this blog provides a peek into the fascinating world of the largest nursery at Kew, and the work of the staff there.
