Kew, the magazine of the Royal Botanic Gardens, pulls together a fascinating mix of articles about the world famous gardens at Kew and Wakehurst Place. You can discover the fascinating work that goes on behind the scenes and on expedition in Kew’s mission to discover, conserve and protect wild plant species, and the ways in which people can use the world's plants to improve their lives. From horticulture, education, conservation and the environment to art and history, all the features focus on plants and the people who work with them. The latest news from Kew and the world of plant science, and a diary of events completes the magazine.

Ratings and Reviews
Why not available to Friends of Kew?
Why on earth is this not available to Friends of Kew as part of their membership to save printing and posting (and money) is beyond me!
No free access for Friends of Kew
I am amazed that the Royal
Botanic Garden at Kew should NOT make this e-version of the magazine available free to fully paid up Friends of Kew. The move to consumption online and the reduction in trees culled to publish the print magazine will never be achieved unless this version is made free to members.
Good Mag, bad CS
Kew Magazines cancelled original app a couple of days after I paid my annual sub in January 2015. Told to contact App Store for refund. So far App Store say third party apps are nothing to do with them. Don't see why I should pay again and at an increased cost of £14.99.
Not the way to attract new members.
