One of the highlights of the Hot Garden at @rhsrosemoor in autumn is Rooper’s red-hot poker (#Kniphofia).

The Glasshouse Landscape @rhswisley provides us with beautiful autumn colours from the #miscanthus, #rhus and beech hedges in particular.


Many of the herbaceous plants have structural seedheads and the grasses add texture and shape throughout autumn and winter. #AutumnGardenDays 🍁🍃🍂• •

Symphyotrichum novi-belgii 'Rosenwichtel'.


These are perennial asters which can be found in the Equinox Garden at @rhswisley. They are great for flower borders and beds and their normal flowering period is late summer to mid-autumn. #AutumnGardenDays

In autumn, colonies of #cyclamen bloom beneath the trees in Howard's Field at @rhswisley, creating pretty carpets of pink. •

You can see more delightful displays of cyclamen this autumn in the Rock Garden, Alpine Meadow and Alpine Display House. #AutumnGardenDays • •

Here we have three species of the #Delosperma plant, all currently looking rather exquisite at @rhswisley. •

Delosperma can usually be distinguished by their seed capsules, which when open are exposed and not covered by a protective membrane.


Which one is your favourite? Fire Spinner 'P001S' (1st image), 'John Proffitt' (2nd) or 'Beaufort West' (3rd) #AutumnGardenDays • •

Late summer flowering shrubs are few and #Abelia is arguably the best. It's easy to grow, carries tubular or bell shaped flowers in abundance over a long period and is and devoid of problems. Some carry scented flowers which are relished by pollinators.
Albelia like any fertile garden soil in full sun and a sheltered spot. It loses it's leaves in winter so can be under-planted with spring bulbs.

This plate includes grandiflora 'Hopleys', grandiflora 'Francis Mason' and grandiflora 'Kaleidoscope'. #AutumnGardenDays

​As summer fades to autumn, one of the best gardens to explore at @rhswisley is Oakwood – formerly known as the Wild Garden. Full of vibrant autumn foliage with rich displays of red and orange shades. #AutumnGardenDays 🍂🍁🍃

#Salvia 'I Cavalieri del Tau'


This frost hardy shrub adds a lovely pink colour to gardens in September and can be found currently at @rhswisley #AutumnGardenDays • •

We have some fantastic salvia advice in this month’s The Garden magazine.

The 'Healing Garden' exhibition at RHS Lindley Library opens from today, revealing the medicinal uses (and the medical myths!) attributed to some of our most well-known garden plants throughout the centuries. The event is free for RHS members and non-members. •

Illustrations of plants from some of the herbals (authors noted below from L-R) in our rare books collection: • Valerian – was a popular cure-all for centuries, we now know it is effective as a sedative – its ability to provide rest and relief from symptoms may explain why it was held in such high esteem. • Foxglove – foxgloves (which we now know to be poisonous) were recommended for the treatment of epilepsy, which used to be known as the ‘falling sickness’
. • Primrose – primroses were used for basic first aid, the leaves were put into ointments to heal wounds. • Lemon Balm – lemon balm was prized for its uplifting fragrance and was said to ‘make a merry heart’
