Ep. 154 - The end of October is peak Autumn in the garden - it's also half-term, this means Lucy is enjoying some time off with her family, but gives Saul a chance to bring you all to Stonelands to enjoy the sights of this wonderous season.

Autumn has arrived on the shores of the UK - a slight freshness to the mornings and a waning of the light signal that subtle change to the season. In the garden the peak colour and growth is starting to give way to the texture and autumnal colours that signal the slow, but beautiful descent, into a period of more dormant reflection. Autumn can be one of the most beautiful times of year and also a celebration of what has gone before, the present harvest of abundance but also the future excitement of gardening plans and work.

Mild weather continues this October - and although this may not bring on a classic display of Autumn colour for our trees, the end of October and start of November is peak season for reds, yellows and oranges. It's also school half-term, Lucy is enjoying some time with her little one, so Saul is left to guide you around Stonelands looking at some of the best trees and flowers that are giving us our final send off the gardening year.
