Famous for its autumn colour, this is the season that Sheffield Park and Garden was planted for. Centuries of design and care have created the woods, glades and lakes with their remarkable autumn colours. Pre-booking is essential in 2020.
The autumn landscape at Petworth can be breathtaking. The native oaks and limes have wonderful shapes as well as colours, and they’re interspersed with exotics such as yellow swamp cyprus, flaming yellow and orange acers and vibrant red oaks. It’s an incredible sight.
In the Arts & Crafts garden, plants featured in Morris & Co. designs can be found in the borders and beds. Meanwhile the kitchen garden is at its most productive, providing the cafe with pumpkins, apples and more.
The borders at Nymans are still bursting with colour in autumn. While at the south end of the garden you'll find the South African bed, set in rhythmic patterns and bold drifts.
Visit Uppark this autumn and see the garden turn from lush greens into golds reds and oranges.
