We chose to present this year's Ramadan Collection at the historical Kew Gardens for its stewardship and extensive collection of plants. Kew Gardens is a botanical wonder that captivates visitors with its lush greenery and its role in the preservation and study of plant life.
Established in 1840, the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site that spans 330 acres and houses over 50,000 living plants. It serves as a global resource for plant research, conservation, and education.
Kew Gardens features a diverse range of plant species from various climates and ecosystems, contributing to scientific understanding and the preservation of biodiversity.
Last year, an enriching exhibition showcasing "Plants of the Quran" by Dr Shahina Ghazanfar of the Royal Botanic Gardens Kew and artist Sue Wickison was also held in Kew Gardens.
"Several plants are mentioned in the Qur’ān that have a history of use as food, medicine or have value for a particular characteristic they hold. Most of the plants mentioned in the Qur’ān can be identified to present day plants." - Plants of the Quran: History & Culture by Dr. Shahina Ghazanfar and illustrated by Sue Wickison.
The above made Kew Gardens a meaningful location to showcase our Ramadan in Bloom Collection.
