Winter at Kew Gardens
A different scene emerges in winter when woody plants and ornamental grasses take centre stage.
For Tony Kirkham, Head of the Arboretum at Kew, the colder months reveal some of the Gardens’ secrets:
“winter is one of my favourite times in the Arboretum at Kew. The trees have lost their leafy summer disguise and can show off their natural structural beauty. I often head to the Pinetum to enjoy the conifers suddenly standing out and coming to life with a myriad of blue foliage and cones”

The best images from the International Garden Photographer of the Year (IGPOTY) competition will be displayed in the Nash Conservatory from February to March 2017.
