What's Blooming This Week?

The brilliance of the autumn leaves in The Horse Paddock rival any flower in our gardens at this time of year.

The Horse Paddock is a two acre arboretum containing a collection of trees from the Northern hemisphere selected primarily for autumn leaf colour.  

The Horse Paddock is dedicated to Theophrastus, author of the Enquiry into Plants and regarded as the father of scientific Botany.
