The Garden

November 2016

This month RHS Garden Wisley manager Emma Allen showcases Wisley’s seasonal highlights as it establishes itself in all its autumn glory (as featured on our cover). Jean Vernon looks at garden fauna and takes joy in the antics of blue tits and other closely related birds. Roy Lancaster visits a nursery on the Devon and Cornwall border that stocks an eclectic range of rare first-rate garden plants, while Colin Randel, RHS Vegetable Trials Forum member, summarises the results of the 2015 RHS Plant Trial of Kale. Finally, Jon Ardle takes a closer look at native fungi which start to make an appearance at this time of year.
