About

Kew Gardens welcome back pleasure boating for the first time in more than 100 years, as part of the IncrEdibles festival, but this is no ordinary boating lake!

Fruit shaped boats will be rowed on luscious Mediterranean blue water, through a giant, interactive floating pineapple which has been created by famous “food architects” Bompas and Parr.

And the lake is just a start, visitors can also:

•Travel the globe in the Global Kitchen Garden – which will feature more than 90 edible plants.

•Join a tea party with a twist – where a variety of edible plants will grow out of plates, goblets, dishes, jugs and platters.

•Bounce on giant inflatable carrots

•Attend talks, tours and tastings

The Palm House is home to more than 60 weird and exotic edible plants. The festival invites visitors to reconsider the amazing bounty of the plant world and offers a first-hand experience of a selection of some of the 12,000 plant species we can feast on.
