Christmas Bell 2014

Kew’s Millennium Seed Bank holds over 34,000 wild plant species and you can adopt one of them from just £25.

Here are a few of our festive choices...

Native to south-east Australia and classed as Endangered by the Queensland Government, Blandfordia grandiflora flowers in late December giving it its common name 'large Christmas bell'. Click the image below to learn more about this beautiful plant.

Confined to two of the highest peaks in the Cederberg Wilderness of South Africa, Protea cryophila is critically endangered and is notorious for not flowering and producing seed. Click below to help save this rare and threatened species.

Known as the Indian or mock strawberry, Duchesnea indica is not a true member of the strawberry family, and has no flavour. Click on the link below to learn more about this fruity impersonator.

Packs ordered by 22 December will be posted out on or before 23 December, but we cannot guarantee delivery in time for Christmas, but don't forget with instant download and the ability to print your certificates at home, this is truly the perfect last minute gift.

NB - packs ordered after the 22 December will be posted in the new year.
