Autumn 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 500 trees ranging in ages, sizes and species there’s a huge variety of shapes and colours.

The walled garden continues to flourish at the same time as the leaves change colour. We have beautiful bright flowers alongside tinges of browns and oranges in the beds which will remain 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, white mulberry (Morus alba), purple beech (Fagus sylvatica ‘Purpurea’) to name a few
