November in The Gardens


Autumn colour on the Lime trees in the village was especially good this year


Prunus subhirtella. Its fiery leaves fall and are replaced by delicate blossom whenever the weather is mild, from November to March.


Details from the cottage garden. Ornamental winter cabbage and a cherry grown on a very dwarf stock



The terraces ready for winter. On the slopes we are creating wildflower meadows. The colour in the wider park adds to the charm of this view in autumn

Berries and Leaf shapes get closer scrutiny at this time of year. The ghostly Gunnera has been hit by the first frosts and berries are bringing in migrating birds throughout the gardens.
