Come and enjoy autumn colour at the RHS Gardens with free entry for all on 1 October 2019
Each year we offer the chance to come and enjoy the glory of autumn at the RHS Gardens for free!
Our beautiful gardens will be open to all free of charge on 1 October 2019.
Look for the Equinox Borders in Seven Acres, where asters are the stars of the show – a sea of purple blooms, punctuated by autumn-flowering Kniphofia (red-hot poker), hardy fuchsias and deciduous Euonymous. The Glasshouse Borders and Glasshouse Landscape also look spectacular at this time of year.
The Main Borders
shine in autumn, when golden grasses and sculptural seedheads float above the flower beds. The Sandstone Rock Garden
boasts fabulous autumn colour, and wonderful seasonal hues are expected in the Woodland
On Clover Hill
, the soft autumn sun illuminates drifts of late-flowering perennials and ornamental grasses, while specimen trees around the Lake
start to show their striking autumn hues. The Australia and New Zealand Garden
is also well worth a visit in autumn.
The Foliage Garden
transforms as summer gives way to autumn and the grasses take on shades of gold and red. In Lady Anne's Arboretum
, autumn crocus (Colchicum
) form a carpet of colour around the rare and unusual trees, and seasonal colour creeps through the banks of the Lake
This autumn sees the first crop of local heritage apples in the Devon Orchard
