Autumn Colour at Moseley

Quinces by the Knot Garden in Autumn

Take a walk into the garden and woodland to surround yourself in the glorious colour of the changing seasons.

As the temperature starts to drop, and night-time arrives sooner, the garden and woodland at Moseley becomes enriched with ambers and reds, as well as the odd pop of colour from autumn crocuses.

This is the time of year to tog up and step into nature. Look out for the different plants dispersing their seeds and the small animals that eat and collect them in time for winter. Four-legged friends welcome!

For children, there are lots of things to do. Make a showstopper mud pie using the colourful leaves around you, build a den fit for a king, and climb all the way up the treehide to get the best view of the treetops.
