The Global Kitchen Garden, situated on the Great Lawn opposite Kew Palace, features over 90 edible plants from every corner of the globe. Two semi-circular inner beds are dedicated to herbs while five outer beds represent different regions of the world.

Grapes, pomegranate and olive trees have been planted in a circular design. It’s open through November 3, 2013.

The Global Kitchen Garden is part of “IncrEdibles: A Voyage through Surprisingly Edible Plants“, a multifaceted exhibition whose core dates end September 1, 2013.
