In my capacity as editor of the annual publication, Great Gardens to Visit, not only do I get the opportunity to visit gardens all over the UK, but every year I also have the privilege of delivering talks and lectures to scores of garden clubs, horticultural societies and many other groups up and down the country.
One of the talks I regularly give is entitled ‘Gardens to Visit in Autumn’ and it always seems to come as a surprise to people that there are just so many stunning gardens to visit in Britain at this time of year.
For me, it is the most wonderful time of year to be in a garden and so I am delighted to introduce the second of GTO’s Garden Visits News pages, bringing you updates of the goings on around the UK’s gardens this autumn and into 2012.
