The annual garden spectacular will feature around 40 meticulously-created sculptures from over 200 horticultural artists from Europe, Asia, the Americas, the Middle East and Africa. They form an awe-inspiring 2km circuit through the Botanical Gardens in Montreal which will feature over three million plants. The sculptures will be showcased in 10 exhibition greenhouses and 30 themed gardens at the Montréal Botanical Garden until 29 September.
