September at The Weir Garden

Shelves filled with veg for sale at The Weir

Come September the harvest is well underway at The Weir as happy visitors leave with armfuls of carrots, potatoes, onions and beans.

Our wonderful glasshouse is full of onions drying, waiting to be plaited and hung. The juicy tomatoes continue to ripen, enjoying the warmth of the glasshouse as the days gradually begin to fall colder and crisper.

The spring migratory birds will leave this month, heading for warmer climates and before long Redwings, Fieldfare and Starlings will make an appearance, unearthing worms and other tasty morsels from the soil.

The summer begins to fade away and as autumn steps in the garden is suddenly a quiet place, filled with birdsong and bubbling water. The leaves begin to change and the morning dew will highlight cobwebs and leaves, all very beautiful and worthy of a photo or two.

The garden is an enjoyable place to relax in September. It's true you may need an extra layer of clothing, but the nature and changing of seasons is exquisite here and the fresh air feels exhilarating to young and old alike.

We invite you to join us for Classic cakes in the garden to celebrate the changing of season throughout September. Enjoy fresh, homemade cake accompanied by a hot cup of tea or coffee as you make the most of this magical time in a picturesque setting.  

Cake in a beautiful setting, perfect!
