September in the Arboretum

Monday 1 September 2014 to
Tuesday 30 September 2014

10am to 5pm

Get set for a fantastic September in the arboretum.

September in the arboretum is on target to be a feast for all the senses thanks to the mild spring. 

The absence of late frosts means there’s a glut of gorgeous haws hips and berries – particularly on our wonderful collection of Sorbus.

One of the highlights of this time of year is the Katsura tree – Cercidiphyllum japonicum.  As well as providing lovely late summer tree colour, it also exudes a wonderfully mouth-watering popcorn, burnt-sugar smell. 

You’ve probably noticed the hedgerows laden with berries this year and that’s being echoed in the arboretum – perfect for a stroll to see the build up to our spectacular autumn colour.
