We had a nice morning at the gardens... and then got hit by a parking fine from a very shady private enforcement company who won't accept my receipt of entry to the gardens as proof we were there. This is corruption pure and simple, akin...More

I’m sorry you would have to contact the Birmingham Botanical Garden for that advice or even Kew Gardens. They would be able to answer your questions.

Might be worth giving them a call on 0121 454 1860. They should be able to tell you, or might put you on a mailing list for when they announce their plans
