Autumn ambles at Emmetts Garden

The woods in autumn at Emmetts Garden, a National Trust property in Kent

Autumn brings with it a fiery display of colours in the woods at Emmetts Garden - from the crispy orange leaves on the floor to the brilliant red of the fungi. Make sure you take a turn around the south garden before you head into the woods - the burnt toffee tree smells delicious in early autumn.

Fungi heaven

The damp woodlands provide ideal conditions for fungi. Look out for the distinctive red and white spotted fly agaric or the smelly stinkhorn, but take care not to touch as many fungi are poisonous.
