The Autumn Garden

The Autumn Garden can be a most special finale to the warm growing season. Yet really good Autumn Gardens are still rarely seen. So many people overlook the remarkable potential of this vibrant season.  In the past, Gardeners of Asia traditionally relied on just a few seasonal flowers, flowering shrubs and small trees plus berries and vivid autumnal foliage for the Autumn Garden, as they had fewer Autumn-blooming native wildflowers with which to work. The major exception would be the classic Chrysanthemum which became the high art and emblem of Asian Autumn gardening.

Classic European/Northern Hemisphere/ Western Cultures certainly appreciate their vivid Autumn foliage plus native seasonal wildflowers and their glorious hybrids. In many places the fields are cloaked in great sweeps of bright colour right up to frost. But in those regions which so frequently experience such severe climatic extremes their attention was much more appropriately focused on advanced preparations for Winter and planting of bulbs for the Spring season ahead.
