Latest issue

This packed autumn issue of Kew magazine celebrates all that this wonderful season has to offer, from fabulous fungi to changing colours. We also meet Mark Frith, whose exhibition of drawings of ancient oaks is about to open at Kew’s Shirley Sherwood Gallery of Botanical Art, and he exclusively reveals how this extraordinary project came together. Inside, you’ll also find features on some of the most intriguing plants to seek out in the Temperate House – as recommended by Kew staff, where to find one of Kew’s most poignant oaks which is a memorial to the Lockerbie disaster 30 years ago, and also how Kew is marking the centenary of the end of the First World War with a specially designed new ’Seat of Hope and Remembrance’ made from the timber of a fallen Verdun oak.
As always there’s plenty of news, events and special science covered here too. So put your feet up and dip in, there’s lots to discover.
