Autumn in the garden

October 17th 2016 in In The Garden

Autumn is without doubt one of the very best times of year to visit the garden, and it is also one of the most exciting times of year for the gardens team. 

After a lingering summer the autumn tints at Cholmondeley are now starting to reveal their full majesty. Across the garden you will find reds, pinks, oranges, yellows and browns and a full palette of rich colours. You can also smell the season especially underneath the Katsura trees which over-hang the stream and emit their candy floss aromas across the garden airs.

For the gardens team it is that really exciting time of year when our major project work begins. We have already extended the Duckery further still and opened out new vistas, whilst there has been extensive new plantings added to the Duckery andTemple Garden. And the infected old Cedar next to the Lavinia Walk has also had to be removed. With more renovation work planned over the coming months it promises to be an autumn to remember!
