Latest issue

In this autumn issue of Kew magazine you'll find a fascinating array of features and news, including a behind the scenes look at the new Rebecca Louise Law exhibition, which will be filling the Gallery with flower garlands, and a peek behind the hoardings at the newly restored Temperate House with architecture critic Hugh Pearman.
We also ask the question - why do leaves change colour in autumn? Some of the answers might surprise you. And, we ask top garden photographer Andrea Jones for her tips on getting the best autumn photographs.
There's features from Kew's science too. Kew's director of science Prof. Kathy Willis gives us an insight into the global importance of the new State of the World's Plants reports - how they are making a difference and what intriguing stories have been revealed. And, Kew's Aaron Davis writes about the results of a five year project on how climate change will affect coffee growing, and what can be done to help continue the production of our favourite brew.
You'll also find features on the new Kew wine collection, the 30th anniversary of the Great Storm, and an interview with author Tor Udall. There's something for everyone!
