Looking good now
Magnolias - Beautiful magnolias are already starting to bloom at Kew. You can find over 250 types of magnolias across the Gardens. Right now, visit them near the Elizabeth Gate entrance, Victoria Gate, and near the Kew Gardens Gallery.
Scilla forbesii (also known as Chionodoxa) - A carpet of blue has bloomed on the lawn near White Peaks. The delicate blue flowers create a sea of colour and welcome spring to the grounds.
Camellias - Several varieties of camellia are in flower across the Gardens and can be found along the path from Victoria Gate to the Shirley Sherwood Gallery.
Daffodils - The sunny glow of daffodils is starting to spread across the grounds. They're looking particularly good around the around White Peaks café and the Temple of Aeolus.

Visit the Davies Alpine house, which has changing displays of unusual and exotic bulbs between March and May.
Later in spring, thousands of deep blue, starry-flowered Scilla forbesii carpet the lawns by White Peaks. These delicate alpine plants are known as ‘glory of the snow’ in western Turkey, as they emerge from the melting snow of the mountains.
Enjoy the stunning Cherry Walk as it comes into bloom from mid-March. It runs from the Rose Garden behind the Palm House to King William’s Temple, and then on to the Temperate House.
Crocuses - Flowering in swathes across the grounds, the delicate crocuses bring colour back to Kew in the earliest days of spring. Visitors arriving at Victoria Gate are greeted by a sea of over two million Crocus vernus, which stretch beyond the Temple of Bellona and towards King William’s Temple.
