KEW Gardens Economic Botany Collection Visit

A big thankyou to Greengaged ( - for putting together this free trip to see the behind the scenes botany collection at Kew Gardens on Monday.

Although, a freezing and early start this was a really worthwhile day. I was particularly impressed by the delicate use of mulberry roots in Japan and the leather leaves from New Zeland. Amazing! 

Also, a lovely opportunity to meet some very inspiring people over coffee at The Orangery Cafe!
