In the garden

Autumn brings bright orange, yellow and red leaves colouring the sky and landscape and then falling and covering everywhere like a patchwork quilt. With 600 trees ranging in ages and sizes and species there’s a huge variety of shapes and colours.

The walled garden continues to flower away at the same time as leaves changing colour. We have beautiful tinges of browns and oranges amongst the beds and will do until the first frosts.

Look out for
  • autumn harvests including squashes, apples, pears and late summer raspberries
  • late flowering displays in the walled garden still offering so much colour until the first frosts such as dahlias, cosmos, zinnias
  • our beautiful autumn leaf colour around the grounds.  Ginkgo biloba, Morus alba – White Mulberry, Fagus sylvatica ‘Purpurea’ – Purple beech to name a few.
