In the garden

Autumn

Although the warmth and brightness of summer is over, autumn gives us wonderful new experiences and changes to appreciate and embrace. There are different smells in the air and new colours in the landscape. The garden at Fulham Palace brings gorgeous tones of orange, yellow, red and brown. With 600 trees ranging in age, size and species there’s a variety of leaf shapes and colours to see.  The walled garden continues to flower away and will do so until the first frosts.

Look out for:

  • Our beautiful autumn leaf colour around the grounds.  Ginkgo biloba, Morus alba – white mulberry, Fagus sylvatica ‘Purpurea’ – purple beech, to name a few
  • late flowering displays in the walled garden still offering so much colour until the first frosts such as dahlias, cosmos, zinnias
  • autumn harvests including squashes, kale and parsnips and Brussels sprouts continue to develop
  • ornamental seed heads and grasses providing much-loved interest in the borders.

Natural play area

Our new natural play area is now open! This play area uses logs and wooden objects saved from previous tree work on site as a basis for natural play, encouraging families to connect with nature in a fun and enjoyable way. Children are encouraged to interact creatively with natural materials set in a woodland area of our botanic garden.
