Glow 2019 at RHS Wisley

Glow is an event held each December at RHS Wisley where you get to see the gardens in a whole new 'light'. They are illuminated with thousands of LEDs and bulbs to give a stunning, slightly surreal spectacle that proves a hit with adults and children alike.

You are led around the garden, guided by fairy-light edged pathways while being surrounded by glowing trees, multicoloured flowers and classical music. Parts of the glasshouse felt distinctly alien with glowing blue cacti and red orchid roots hanging like tentacles. Fitting when War of the Worlds was set only a few miles away.

There was also a strong festive theme with reindeer and giant poinsettia Christmas trees. The new entrance was surrounded by giant glowing flowers, where you could push buttons to change the colour.

Of course, no winters walk to would be complete without a pick-me-up and there was mulled wine available at relevant intervals throughout the tour.

If you have not had chance to visit Glow at RHS Wisley yet then don't panic! Sun Gardening visited this week (and got a bit wet!) so that we could bring you these amazing photos.

We hope you like them!
