The garden in autumn at Quebec House

Our garden may be small but it's bursting with seasonal blooms. Discover what you can see on a visit to Quebec House this autumn.

Autumn colour at Quebec House

Autumn is the time for lutea sternbergia - the winter daffodil, the fiery Dutch iris autumn princess and the delicate geranium tuberosum to name just a few flowers to be found in our garden this season.

The anemones are always another one not miss as they stay bright and strong while the rest of the vegetation begins its journey to dormancy.

Our garden team has been hard at work in the garden of Quebec House, working on bringing a small bit of history to life. Find out what we're up to here.

Come and enjoy a relaxing visit to our small but beautiful townhouse gardens. With the light shining through the branches of the trees as the leaves turning from cold greens to warm shades of red, there's always a different sight awaiting you as the weather starts to turn towards the colder months.

Gardening tips

Many think that the autumn and winter are quiet seasons in the gardeners calendar but this is the perfect time for prepping, plotting, planning and scheming for the following year.

Beds need tidying, greenhouses need cleaning, compost needs turning/emptying and lawns should have an autumn care programme.

Apples will ripen from the outside (near the sun) to the centre (shaded for longer). Clues for their ripeness are their colour, texture and readiness to pick. Rotate and gently twist and they should separate from the branch without any real force.
