Autumn gardens – get out and see the autumn trees

This time of year the trees put on an amazing display of colours and the leaves begin to turn before falling. This is the last chance to get out as see some out this countries great gardens as many close down for the winter. As well as stately homes there are forests and arboretas to visit, search for what’s open now in your local area.

My favourite garden for autumn colours, which is local to me, is Exbury Gardens in Hampshire which is really worth a visit, with a huge collection of Acers which look stunning now as well as the national collection of Nyssa and Oxydendrum trees. Here are some images taken this week…
