The spring issue of Kew magazine is packed with features and reasons to visit Kew and Wakehurst. We go behind the scenes at the creation of this year's India-themed Orchids Festival to see how 30,000 orchids and many other tropical plants are used to stunning effect in the displays. We travel to Madagascar with film-maker Jon Drori to see how Kew is working with 100 villages across the country to help save native plants. And, we take a look at some of the floral highlights of spring including Kew's beautiful iris collections and the unusual paperbush tree (Edgeworthia tomentosa). There's also features on Wakehurst's woodlands, the bi-centenary of the birth of Joseph Hooker, and a project to help conserve orchids which are being over-harvested as a foodstuff in Africa. There's plenty of news and a full events calendar to browse too.
