Some of the finest garden photographs in the world are on display near Ardingly.

An exhibition of photographs from the International Garden Photographer of the Year competition is on show at Kew’s Millennium Seed Bank at Wakehurst Place, near Ardingly, until September 20.

Visitors can enjoy a stunning selection of winning images from the competition, celebrating the beauty of plants and gardens.

The theme of the exhibition is Images of a Green Planet.

Eyecatching exhibits range from a photograph highlighting the lush foliage of the Waterlily House at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, to the overall winner of the competition - wildflowers captured at sunrise at Crater Lake National Park in Oregon, USA.

Other atmospheric pictures include British wildflower meadows, along with a variety of landscapes from around the world, from a Polish allotment to botanic gardens in Singapore.

Andy Jackson, Head of Wakehurst Place, said: “We hope the exhibition will inspire our visitors to reach for their cameras and take their own pictures around the gardens here at Wakehurst.”

Entry to the exhibition is included in admission to Wakehurst. For more information about visiting Wakehurst visit www.kew.org.
