This year's festival is inspired by the 'forces of nature' - fire, air, water and earth. See the lush tropical landscape of the glasshouse contrasted with vibrant floral displays - fiery reds, yellows and oranges, and shimmering silvers and blues. Discover the fascinating ways plants depend on and balance the effects of these elements.
