A visit to Furzey Gardens this October is a feast for the eyes, with late summer colour peppering borders and autumnal vistas starting to appear at every turn.

Borders around the garden are full of colourful displays, in particular the borders in the cottage garden and the large border in front of Furzey House continue to thrive in the autumn sunshine. Along the bottom path colourful displays of Kirengeshoma break up the lush green foliage.

Beautiful autumnal hues of red, orange and yellow are starting to appear around the garden as our acers begin their seasonal display.  Don’t miss fine specimens such as Acer Palmatum ‘Bloodgood’, Acer palmatum ‘Shindeschojo’ and Acer rubrum ‘October Glory’ as their leaves turn to their autumn shades. Pick up our autumn plants of interest map at the entrance for more information on these beautiful trees.

Look closely and you will see trees and shrubs bearing a plentiful bounty of berries and seeds as they bear their fruit, providing thrushes, blackbirds and other wildlife a tasty source of food through the coming months.
