There are some won­der­ful con­trasts in the gar­den right now as some plants cling ad­mirably on to sum­mer while oth­ers fully em­brace au­tumn. In my gar­den there are still beau­ti­ful blooms of dahlias (es­pe­cially ‘Twyn­ing’s Af­ter Eight’), clary sage and os­teosper­mum, while just yards away one cor­nus has de­cided to shed its leaves al­ready and show its re­splen­dent red branches. I think it knows I want to move it this au­tumn and has just given me a sig­nal that it’s ready! Au­tumn is such a vi­brant time in the gar­den – as Carol Klein says (page 26), ev­ery­body loves the colour it brings. We’re less keen on the colder weather and darker evenings but I know they don’t stop the hardy GN read­ers!
