Plants to spot in autumn at Dyffryn

A view of Dyffryn House through the gardens.

A garden for all seasons Dyffryn is home to many unusual, rare and intriguing varieties of flowers, fruit and vegetables.

What to look out for

  • Californian Fuschia in the rockery
  • Apples and Pears in the kitchen garden
  • Horse Chestnuts in the arboretum
  • Monkshood in the herbaceous border
  • Grapes ripening in the glasshouse
  • Red Cabbages in the kitchen garden
  • Dahlias in the west garden

Pick up some produce

Most days we have a selection of our kitchen garden produce for sale outside the shop. This time of year we are ilkely to be harvesting runner beans, red and white currants, potatoes, onions and courgettes. The selection changes daily according to what is ripe and ready to be picked. 

Rose garden update

Throughout August we will be stumping back the yew hedges around the rose garden. The hedges have far outgrown their intedned size and are blocking out much needed sunlight. Although this may look drastic the yews will come back over the next couple of years and our roses will benefit from better air circulation and light as well as returning the garden to its Thomas Mawson design.
