Christmas 2009 saw the RHS garden at Wisley in a magical new light. Spectacular light installations transformed late winter afternoons with a burst of colour that illuminates the grandeur of some of the iconic trees and structures. As the daylight begins to fade, the Lumière is brought to life.
Following the garden trail led to the discovery of 18 artistic installations. See the eight-bauble tree, with glowing orbs delicately suspended among the branches.
Marvel at the Glasshouse transformed into a treasure-trove of shapes and shadows playing on exotic palms. Take in the floating rings of light on the Canal, and dance around the historic oak tree to trigger the swirling change of colour.
