A Glimpse of the November Garden

Morton Hall Gardens close at the end of September, so that visitors never get the opportunity to enjoy the glorious autumn foliage of our Japanese cherries and acers. As with every good firework display, there is a burst of colour that lasts for a much too short time. However, for a few days in November, the Stroll Garden and the West Garden are clad in yellows, oranges and reds that radiate in the low autumn light.
