From 10 February -11 March 2018, flower lovers head to Richmond, just outside of London, for Royal Botanic Gardens' Kew Gardens to celebrate the orchid.

There are also opportunities to hear talks about conservation efforts, orchid growing tips and Thai botanical expeditions from Kew's horticulturists and scientists.
