Autumn gardens in London

With its nourishing amber glow, autumn sunlight produces some of the most vibrant colours in the garden all year. Garden lovers can seek out the Shagbark Hickory with its soft buttery tones in the grounds of Osterley Park and House or swathes of colour from Morning Glory, phlox and Russian Flag in the cross boarders at Fenton House and Garden. When you explore our gardens in and around London this autumn you help us to keep them looking great all year round.
