I think that October is my favourite month of the year, the colours are wonderful as leaves loose their chlorophyll and the reds and yellows and oranges are revealed. Liquid Amber is lovely and the dark red leaves of the Vitus Vinifera Spetchley Red are some of my favourites.
The asparagus is almost ready to cut down for the winter but the changing foliage looks lovely for a few weeks.
Plenty of flowers and seed heads to brighten the garden in October:
Still plenty of fresh produce in the garden. The tomatoes in the green house are still ripening, cabbages, chard and leeks are ready, apples, pears, Inca berries, the last few figs and beans this month and picked the last cucumber for lunch today.
The list goes on but enough for now. More news from the Walled Garden next month.
