The celebrated Kew Orchid Festival opens to the public this weekend (7th February-8th March) and as exclusive partners with RBG Kew, we were given a sneaky peak into the festival which will be displaying some of our Orchids throughout the festival.
Kew have been running the festival for many years and has been a popular event to explore. Along with guided tours and talks, Kew tell the story of how these colourful flowers evolved and their role in pollination.
This year, Kew will be featuring
Ultraviolet lighting in the Princess of Wales Film Room which will reveal the hidden marks on some species, designed to trick insects into thinking they are encountering a different plant altogether.
Along with some informative talks on the Science of Orchids, behind the scenes tours and a talk by Tom Van Dyke, there is a packed schedule for this year.
If you want to discover the explosion of colour at this years festival; tickets are available from the Kew website or you can pay on the day.[more...]
