The display will transform the garden’s conservatory into a tunnel of hypnotic floral designs reminiscent of a look through a kaleidoscope. “Color is the first and most important aspect of my work, always,” Jeff Leatham says. “I want every gallery to be a different color experience for visitors as they move through them, like looking into a kaleidoscope. I loved kaleidoscopes as a child. You start dreaming as you look through one. People have seen the interiors of the Conservatory already, but with this exhibition, I want them to look through them like never before.” And as usual, there will be special Orchid Evenings during which visitors can enjoy the attraction after dark and see the Supertrees, including a gorgeous display of lights.
