There are signs that Furzey is slipping gracefully into autumn at every turn as you wander round the garden’s tranquil woodland tracks.

As summer ends and we head into autumn there is a feeling of change in our secret New Forest garden.

With fewer visitors, late summer blooms and the start of riotous autumn colour this is one of the very best times to visit the gardens.

Hardy perennials, such as helianthus, helenium and aster, present their bold and brilliant colours in our borders. Many of our spring flowering trees and shrubs are now bearing fruit such as our malus  and sorbus species with their scarlet red berries.  Look closely at our trees and you will see a beautiful array of seed pods, our acer collection in particular is showing some fine winged seeds (winged samaras).

Don’t miss the garden sculpture trail which arrives at Furzey Gardens on 18 September. Featuring nine different artists this exhibition has been put together by FiveTwo to give you inspiration for your own garden spaces.

Below are some of the horticultural highlights of September at Furzey Gardens,

Helenium autumnale and salvia farinacea Benth in the cottage garden
