Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, United Kingdom

London, United Kingdom
Founded by Princess Augusta in 1759, the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew showcases the world's largest collection of living plants and fungi. The 18th century English landscape garden concept proliferated in Europe and Kew's influence in horticulture, plant classification and economic botany spread internationally from the time of Joseph Banks' directorship in the 1770s.
