Help Kew's Millennium Seed Bank protect the future of the world's plants

Adopt one of our seeds held in the Millennium Seed Bank for £25

With four plant species at risk of extinction every day, it’s never been more urgent to protect the endangered plants which may be key to our survival. For £25 you can adopt the seed of a plant species to ensure its preservation, adopt a county flower species for £250, or you can save an entire plant species from extinction for £1,000 or £2,000

You'll receive a personalised certificate, featuring a picture of your plant species. For the £25 Adopt a Seeds, for an additional £2, you can have an Adoption Pack posted featuring the certificate and a full colour picture of your species.
You'll receive regular updates over the year from the Millennium Seed Bank (MSB) so you can follow the progress of the important conservation work you’re helping to fund. Watch the video and find out about the work of the MSB.
