Late summer gardens 

As long summer nights give way to cooler days, the colours in our gardens in and around the South East slide gently into warming tones.

From the burgeoning dahlias and bulging pumpkins at The Vyne in Hampshire to early harvest pickings at Smallhythe Place in Kent, the holidays may be over but many shrubs, climbers and herbaceous perennials aren’t ready to pack up just yet.
