We will stroll through the autumn garden at what is essentially the busiest and most enchanting time in the gardening year, but one which is often neglected because for too long we’ve been told that autumn is the time to put the garden to bed; rake up those leaves and cut down those seed-heads and so on. So, this is about planning and planting with autumn in the foremost of our designing minds, with a look at textures, shapes and colors of leaf, bark and berry –and late flowers, that make this a deeply satisfying season.
