Sponsoring one of Kew’s renowned bulb displays is a very special way to celebrate the life of a loved one or to remember a special anniversary or family event.

Some spectacular plantings are available for sponsorship. Choose from five stunning bulb displays at Kew Gardens or Wakehurst.

Your dedication will be recorded on the Commemorative Touchscreen Register in the Secluded Garden glasshouse. You will also receive a personalised certificate detailing your chosen species. Sponsorship of a bulb display costs £250 and the funds raised will be used for the planting and maintenance of the Gardens.
