From a snail in a back yard and a mole bursting out of the earth to exotic landscapes and delicate flowers, these images are all finalists in the International Garden Photographer of the Year.

Organised in conjunction with the Royal Botanical Gardens at Kew, the photographers will have their work taken on tour and published in a book.

Garden Photographer of the Year was set up by five members of the Garden Photographers’ Association in 2007.

As a response to entries and enquiries from outside Great Britain, it added ‘International’ to the title in 2008.

Its first exhibition took place at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, in May 2008 and quickly established itself as the world’s premier garden and plant photography event specialising in garden, plant, flower and botanical photography.

The competition is open to everyone anywhere in the world. Images do not have to be taken in a specified year and there is no distinction drawn between professional and amateur photographers.

The overall winner was taken by Dennis Frates in Crater Lake National Park, Oregon.
