AFTER the dry weather this summer, autumn is arriving early at Stowe Landscape Gardens.

Head gardener Barry Smith, who has seen the seasons change at Stowe Landscape Gardens for more than 30 years, says the leaves are turning colour earlier than usual this time around.

“You will be able to see many different leaves turning into shades of reds, ambers and yellows, while the variety of rosehips and berries are also interesting to see,” added Barry.

There are two autumn events taking place at Stowe this year.

On Sunday, October 9, at the annual Grow With Stowe event all the family can get their hands dirty planting snowdrops, bluebells and cyclamen for everyone to enjoy in the gardens next spring.

And on Saturday, October 15, find out how to grow and look after apple trees.

Children can make apple creatures and bird feeders to take home.
