International Garden Photographer of the Year Exhibition at Sissinghurst

'Morning Mist and Mellow Fruitfulness' by Nigel McCall © IGPOTY

A collection of images from competition 11 of the prestigious International Garden Photographer of the Year will be displayed at Sissinghurst Castle Garden from 12 January - 21 March 2019.

To add a bit of colour to winter, we will be hosting some of the best garden, plant and landscape photography from amateur and professional photographers across the globe.

From portrait to panorama, from the quirky and amusing, to the outright wondrous, these photographs reflect the everlasting appeal of the garden and vividly showcase images of a green planet. Categories include the Beauty of Plants, Wildlife in the Garden and Wildflower Landscapes among others.

We are really excited to be hosting the exhibition again this year, there’s a great set of images to see, local floral designers will be creating an upside down dried flower garden as well as bringing a little of the outdoors inside with some new displays too.
