London is home to many photographer of the year style competitions, and the standard is so high. International garden photographer of the year is no exception. Previous years have been beautiful to behold and this sample suggests 2016's entries are just as good.
But rather than us prattle on, we'll let these captivating images do the talking.
International Garden Photographer of the Year 2016 is on in the Nash Conservatory, Kew Gardens until 13 March. Entrance is included in the admission to Kew Gardens. Adult tickets are £15, concessions available.
