A stroll through a garden is a great way to relax and our most famous one, in Kew, is once again playing host to the finalists and winners of International Garden Photography of the year. Now in its eighth year, it attracts entries from around the world as well as here in the UK.

There are a wide variety of categories, from the traditional choices of plants and wildlife to the monochrome and the microscopic. We visited the exhibition two years ago and loved the breathtaking imagery. Judging from the photographs above we foresee this year's display being just as impressive.

International Garden Photographer of the year is in the Nash Conservatory, Kew Gardens until 6 April. Tickets for the gardens are £15 for adults, children go free. Also on at Kew is the Alluring Orchids display.
