By October, the garden looks autumnal. And although the weather can be quite capricious – it’s an Indian summer one day and a frost the next – autumn is a good time for planting.
September may be the start of autumn, and we can see the garden slowing down. But there’s still plenty of late-flowering perennials, climbers and shrubs to keep the garden going.

The garden is in full swing, with many gardens at their peak, along with a vegetable plot that’s full of produce. It’s such a lovely time of the year in the garden, to enjoy the ‘fruits of your labour’.
