We can define a Botanical garden as a place that grows plants for scientific study, open to the public with proper documentation of the collections including wild origin. London is blessed with Kew Gardens, which looks after the world’s biggest botanical collections, opening its doors to the public in 1759. Kew has developed into a collecting museum, herbarium, scientific institute, library, teaching school and much more.
