I am somewhat surprised to see that Kew is being considered for World Heritage status. This is not in any way to denigrate its importance - as the Rev.Anne says, it is indeed a national treasure. However, the importance of Kew goes beyond its history. It is a working place of immense significance in the world of botany.

World Heritage status implies a need to conserve, whereas Kew - as the article shows - evolves, combining restoration with newer requirements.

The Gardens deserve the respect, but a 'World Heritage site' may be the wrong title.
