The Queen's Garden behind Kew Palace, laid out in the formal 17th century style, displays plants and features that would have been found in an English garden at the time Kew Palace was built. Many of the plant labels quote extracts from early herbals on their medicinal uses. The garden statues, known as 'terms' may have been acquired by Frederick, Prince of Wales in the 1730's. They are the oldest statuary at Kew.
