The Royal Botanic Gardens Kew in south west London is home to an enormous collection of rare and exotic plants which have been collected over the years from all around the world. This has led Kew Gardens to build up a world class reputation in the study and preservation of all types of plants and as a consequence the institution now plays an important part in the study and understanding of the role plants play in protecting our environment.

Since the early 18th century Kew Gardens has grown an extensive collection of illustrations and artworks that are not just pleasing to the eye, but they accurately capture the details of the flora and fauna found in every corner of the world.
