Q. Gardens has won a new world record for “the largest collection of living plants in a single plantation garden.”
The Royal Botanical Gardens in Ken London, with a total of 16,900 plant species on 320 hectares of land, has been recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records (GWR) for biodiversity.
Success will be celebrated in the upcoming GWR book, published in 2022.
Richard Barley, director of horticulture at RBG Kew, said:
This is a wonderful appreciation, and we work tirelessly for our horticulturists and scientists.
Not only are they beautiful places to relax but they are also important centers of inspiration and learning, raising awareness of the importance of plants to the health of our planet and the importance of orchards around the world.
This is not the first time the UNESCO World Heritage Site has received a world record. Other records include the world’s largest flowering plant and the world’s tallest plant.
Not only did it reach a height of three feet[3 m]but it also went to the ancient Titanic, known for its fragrant carnivorous flowers.
The plant has been around since the time of the dinosaurs. In 2018, he received the GWR title for the world’s tallest flower.
Adam Milward, managing editor of Guinness World Records, said: “It is gratifying to know some of RBG Kew’s record-breaking plants in recent years.
“I recently got the suspicion of smelling the Tantan logo; He argued with steam and spray to measure the mysterious puzzle; And submit a giant water lily with a GWR certificate to the test.
Working closely with Botanic Gardens Conservation International, it is amazing to be able to celebrate the whole collection – one of the most beautiful in the world of plants – in the book GWR 2022.
