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
