Every year, Kew Gardens adds a riot of colour to our London winter, with the heady London Orchid show. This year, proceedings are going to be extra-special, as Kew transforms its Princess Wales Conservatory into a celebration of Brazil and its sumptuous plant life.
Coinciding with Rio Carnival 2016, Kew will create a heady tunnel made up of Brazil's dazzling fauna, including Amazonian Rainforest trees, swathed in blankets of oncidium orchids, exuberant Bromeliads. You'll find desert cacti, zany-looking Tillandsia, fire-proof plants.
This show provides a fascinating glimpse into the lush life of Brazil's plants. Book now, and keep the winter blues at bay.
