Group Description

The official Flickr Group for Kew Gardens and Wakehurst.

Share your photos of the Gardens with us and take part in bimonthly photo challenges. Help Kew show off the best of the Gardens and see your photos featured on Kew's website.

Here are some tips on the best way to share your photos with Kew on Flickr.

Include as much information about the subject of your photo as possible
• meaningful image titles and tags that describe where the photo was taken e.g. Kew Gardens or Wakehurst Place
• meaningful image titles and tags that reference the name of the primary subject/species (i.e. plant name, common and/or scientific or building name e.g. palm house). You can find species name information on labels around the gardens.
• other descriptive content about your photo .
