If you have happy memories of times spent at Kew Gardens or Wakehurst, a commemorative gift could be a meaningful way to celebrate a life and remember a loved one.
A personal and discreet service can be provided for families wanting to scatter the ashes of a loved one. We suggest a donation of £500 for all ash scatterings.
Display a plaque with your personal dedication for a 10-year period. Bench sponsorship starts at £5,000.
Funeral directors can arrange a collection, or you can send donations directly to us. For ease of collection, we can supply Kew-branded envelopes at your request.

In recognition of your sponsorship, you’ll receive a certificate and mounted photograph. We ask for a minimum donation of £5,000 to sponsor a tree.
