If you haven’t visited Kew gardens then this is a great time to go as they have a range of activities during the festive season including seasonal illuminations otherwise book a trip for 2016 and see the Orchids in February or just pop along and check out the amazing trees as well as the bonsai house.

This time of year the Callicarpa is in it’s element with bright luminescent purple berries on the winter leafless tracery of delicate branches.
This is one area of Kew gardens I have not been to before, and it is set out behind the new Alpine House in a quiet corner of Kew gardens near the School of Horticulture. It is a modest collection on display but this forms part of Kew’s wider bonsai tree collection.
