September gardens in and around Surrey

A peaceful wander among soft herbaceous borders in gentle September light is just the thing to restore and reset for a new season.

September is a fantastic time to visit our gardens at Polesden Lacey as they mellow into a romantic tangle of repeat-flowering perennials, feathery grasses and sculptural seedheads.

It's also a tranquil time as the days are still and warm and children have been buttoned back into school.

While the landscape garden and lake at Claremont looks beautiful in the September light.
