Richard Moore is a botanical horticulturist at RBG Kew and was one of Pro Landscaper’s 30 Under 30: The Next Generation Class of 2019. Whilst we are all missing the pleasure of visiting the country’s beautiful parks and gardens, he has produced a video walk through the bluebells to lift our spirits. As the nation now has another period of lockdown to get through we can at least see a snapshot of the natural beauty at RBG Kew that is for now behind closed doors.
Richard says: “Join me for a walk through the beautiful conservation area at Kew Gardens through a woodland of native bluebells creating a carpet of wonderful blue flowers. Its a lovely area to walk through, listening to the sounds of the birds and the gentle breeze through the trees, smelling the soft aroma of all the flowers in bloom, gazing out across the serene woodland and soaking up the fresh air. At a time like this the gardens really are a peaceful paradise full of so many wonderful plants and so much wildlife. Being immersed in this garden brings me so much joy and I want to share the tranquillity and beautiful atmosphere of the gardens for everyone to enjoy. Please sit back and relax as we take a walk through the tranquil gardens and escape into nature. There are so many wonderful plants to see and as the weather warms the flowers begin to bloom. As one of the Botanical Horticulturists working at Kew we are doing all we can to ensure the health of our living plant collections during this time, one of the worlds largest and most important biological resources for scientific research.”
