Planet Wakehurst

The spectacular artwork, Planet Wakehurst, has been unveiled at RBG Wakehurst. The UK’s largest outdoor artwork wraps the scaffold around the Elizabethan Mansion while we carry out restoration works.

Planet Wakehurst is a photomontage by artist Catherine Nelson using photography of plants from across the site. As part of the installation there is also a viewing platform, offering visitors views across the Mansion lawns and on to the Sussex downs as well as a glimpse into the construction site.
