Autumn in the gardens at Baddesley Clinton
Baddesley's a great place to enjoy a leisurely stroll in the autumn sun and take in the glorious colours of the leaves and late border flowers.
Gardens undergo an absolutely stunning transformation in autumn. See a myriad of colours as trees put on their most colourful foliage, and animals prepare for the approaching winter months. Autumn gardens are a beautiful place to unwind.
Treading through crunchy leaves, discovering shiny conkers and enjoying the fresh air with all the family, autumn is here for us all to embrace. Take a local walk through the seasonal spectacle of oranges, reds and golds on one of our walks and get planting ideas for your own autumn colours at home from our beautiful gardens.
The walled garden still has plenty to see during the autumn months from asters in the borders to juicy apples hanging heavy in the trees and our new pumpkin patch.
Last year we sowed an insect-friendly flower mix that was a great success and planted the same mix in the border this year. However, our seed mix was overwhelmed by weeds and it was not feasable to re-sow, so for this year we proudly present our pumpkin border, utilising spare seedlings from the vegetable garden.
The pumpkins will provide a low-maintenance display lasting into early winter. Watch this space to see what we come up with next year!
Our productive vegetable garden is still full of vibrant vegetables and beautiful blooms in our cut flower borders.
A stroll round the lake is always lovely, and will become even more spectacular as the leaves turn colour.
From late October we ask visitors to help us collect up leaves – a lovely opportunity for people big and small to get involved and help us look after Baddesley – even if just for 10 minutes!
