A YEAR AT KEW (article first published : 2005-04-24)

A Year at Kew is the title of a documentary to be screened on April 25 at 17h00 on BBC Prime on DStv. It offers an exclusive behind-the-scenes access to an unrivalled living collection of plants.

Meet the experts whose job it is to manage, maintain and enhance the role of London's famous Kew Gardens as a world leader in plant research, conservation and horticultural practice. The running of one of the UK's most popular tourist attractions is revealed throughout the year, with useful tips for the green-fingered as they impart their knowledge on everything from pest control to plant propagation. The tree gang must deal with diseased trees, and when this leads to felling it is all they can do to hold back the tears.

Meanwhile, the Palm House keeper is on the attack against a plague of thrips - and all hands must pull together when the giant bamboo causes an emergency! Outside, preparations for a giant badger sett are also underway.
