Loseley Park Garden in September

5 Written by Lisa on 30th Sep 2011 in Design Tips, Inspiration

It’s been almost 2 months since I last visited Loseley Park so the changes to the garden were really quite dramatic when I popped in there yesterday.  Many of the perennials were just coming to the end of flowering but amazingly, just a day before the garden is closing to the public, there was still something to take photographs of. 

The foliage of the  Miscanthus zebrinus was really full – the pathway here in the flower garden was barely visible but look how it helped to frame the house as a focal point through the pleached trees behind.  Amazingly, some of the Helenium were still in flower…

And the Rudbeckia fulgda ‘Goldsturm’ were looking fabulous too.  I think they are one of the most dramatic and cheerful late-flowering perennials – if you have the space, they look fabulous planted in large clumps or swathes.  Here they are planted with Aster frikartii ‘Monch’ which has an amazingly long flowering period.  In my garden they have been flowering since June and don’t look as though they are about to give up the ghost just yet!

In the White Garden, the Anemone ‘Honorine Jobert’ was looking fabulous…

And the Vegetable Garden was looking really full too…

The onion flowers were on their way out, but I liked the contrast between the silvery leaves of what looked like leeks…but suspect they were a different variety of onion.

As I mentioned, the garden closes now for the winter but I hope that you have enjoyed the journal of my monthly visits there.  It has been really interesting to see the quite dramatic changes to the planting as each month has unfurled.  Try taking photos of your own garden each month – it will really help you to see how it evolves through the seasons and will be an invaluable reminder of the areas you may wish to improve the following year.

    Hi Lisa!
    I love your photos from Loseley Park. Both these from September, but also your other pictures from the same garden.
    I am traveling over to Surrey later this month, and I am looking for something to do outside Sunday 30. October. Do you think this garden will have som interest to share this late in the season? I am looking for a good hike an hopefully som gardens to enjoy.
    All tips are most welcome!
    And thanks again for the lovely pictures!

    Hi Lin – thanks for lovely comments. It’s been great to go to loseley throughout the summer to see how much it changes from month to month and the head gardener there, Bernie, is a brilliant at succession planting! Unfortunately for you it’s closed now for the winter months so you won’t be able to go there – you’ll have to visit next summer! There are many gardens in Surrey that you could visit. RHS Wisley always has something to see even in the depths of winter but there are others too which are great for autumn colour…Savill Garden, Winkworth Arboretum, Polesden Lacey and Claremont Park. Enjoy your trip!

    Hi again, and thanx for all the suggestions!
    I will have to come back for Losley in spring 🙂

    Of the gardens you here mention, which one of them is more garden than park?

  4. Lisa Cox says:

    Wisley, with out a doubt – most of the others are parklands.
