AUTUMN COLOUR IS ALMOST HERE!
Evenley Wood Garden holds a special beauty within, none more so than at Autumn when delightful golden and red colours provide a warm and stunning spectacle. It’s a sight not to be missed! This year, we are holding two special Autumn Colour weekends, on 14th-15th October and also 21st-22nd October.
Our carefully directed routes through the wood garden take you on a journey where a number of special trees can be found. Deep in the wood, the Evenley Gold (Quercus ubra aurea) transforms into a stunning ruby red. It was developed on site and is a truly wonderful oak to see.
We also have the beautiful multi coloured bark of Betula albosinensis ‘Kansu’ as well as the large collection of Euonymus, including Euonymus alatus, with deep dark red berries and stunning deep pink foliage.
You will also be able to spot horse chestnuts, acers and a number of flowering autumn bulbs.
During October half term, the wood garden will be transformed into a Halloween extravaganza!
From 25-29th October, the woods will be unlocking its secrets. Will you be bold enough to venture through the woods and discover what is lurking in the undergrowth and hiding in the shadows?
For little ones, join us during the day for pumpkin carving, story telling and more!
On 28th & 29th October the wood garden will be extending its opening hours for a ghostly trail by torch light for an eerie evening of fun and ‘spookylumination’.
In addition, Autumn sees the return of our fabulous Outdoor Cafe, offering delicious food and drink!
The Evenley Wood Garden staff and volunteers will be on hand throughout the weekends to answer any questions and guide you through the routes.
We very much look forward to seeing you at Evenley Wood Garden!
