Kew's perennially popular month-long celebration of one of the most valuable plants in the world, the orchid, returns for 2014 – on display in the tropical zone of the Princess of Wales Conservatory. You can explore the displays in the tropical zone of the Princess of Wales Conservatory like an intrepid Victorian plant hunter, trekking through arches of flowers, amid suspended bamboo bowls and orchid-draped pillars. Or you could just hang out, basking in unseasonal warmth and colour. The accompanying activities programme offers opportunities to discover the evolution of the household orchid or learn how to create their own displays at home.
