On our trip to Kew Gardens in episode 3 we went to see Carlos Magdalena who works as a Senior Tropical Horticulturist.
Carlos has been working at Kew for 14 years. He has a unique passion for plants and is featured in Sir David Attenborough's Kingdom of plants on SKY 3D Blu Ray. We spoke about his love of tropical plants, the importance of them in our lives and what he is doing to preserve the endangered species at Kew.
