Win a year's Premier Membership to Kew Gardens

To celebrate the opening of Kew's new winter-defying Tropical Extravaganza flower festival (Feb 7–Mar 8), Time Out is offering one lucky green-fingered reader the chance to win a year's Premier Membership to Kew Gardens. With this fantastic prize you can enjoy unlimited entry to Kew Gardens for a year, and receive six free day passes for family members, as well as a subscription to the quarterly Kew Magazine.

Tropical Extravaganza is the first festival of 2009 to mark Kew's 250th anniversary and it sees the Prince of Wales Conservatory brimming with a hot-weather oasis of vibrant orchids and tropical flowers such as bromeliads and anthuriums.

Some of the plants on display will be available to buy in the Kew shop throughout the festival, including a new orchid grown to commemorate Kew's 250th anniversary – a phalaenopsis called 'Fancy Fresco' – the perfect Valentine's gift.
