For those travelling to the UK …

Temperate House and Shirley Sherwood Gallery.

After nearly five years of restoration the Temperate House at Kew Gardens, the largest Victorian glasshouse in the world, has reopened. It holds an internationally important collection of temperate zone plants from Africa, Australia, New Zealand, the Americas, Asia and the Pacific Islands, including some of the rarest and most threatened.

The inaugural meeting of the APS took place at Kew and this visit during our 30th anniversary year will celebrate this. It is scheduled for a date between the 1st and 16th of September and will include a guided tour of the Temperate House and a visit to the Shirley Sherwood Gallery, which has two exhibitions of botanical art featuring Australian plants.
