Plant Sales at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew

kew shopAt the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew (UK) all the plants on sale in the shop are bought from commercial nurseries. Kew does not supply plants from its collection to the public, except in the case of the annual plant auction.

This auction features a number of carefully selected plants with unrestrictive terms of use, and all bidders must sign a non-commercial material transfer agreement. Ten percent of auction profits go into a 'benefit-sharing trust fund' for capacity building projects.
