'The variety and seasonal aspects of the garden give special delight and I want to thank everyone who works at Kew for that.
The magazine I receive is also so impressive, readable and gives understanding to a non-scientist, and I have learnt so much through it.'

How you are helping

This year, Kew is taking part in the 'Big Give Christmas Challenge', a campaign to encourage philanthropic giving by matching a donors’ gift. Effectively your donation to the Millennium Seed Bank Partnership could be doubled! We need to raise £50,000 for next year’s seed collecting trips, as well as expanding our work on using existing collections. Please note: This campaign ran from 6 to 19 December 2012 and has now finished.
