On the following pages is a photographic study of the Palm House at the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew. This isn't meant as an in-depth look at the palms and cycads there, more an attempt to try and capture the essence, and feel of the place :)

Thanks go to Andrew Hobson for the photographs, and to Dr John Dransfield and Dr Bill Baker, for the plant identifications.
