The mellow fruitfulness of Autumn has been heralded by the subtle change in temperature and darker mornings and evenings in the garden. For Lucy Chamberlain and Saul Walker this starts one of their favourite times of year as Lucy's vegetable patch is at maximum yield producing food for East Donyland Hall and Saul revels in the changing colours in the canopies of his precious treescape at Stonelands. So join us throughout the season as we bring tales of crispy leaves, hibernating plants and plenty of pumpkins!

Whether you love formal or informal, evergreen or deciduous, large or small - hedges play an intrinsic role in our gardens. There is a hedging plant to suit all gardens, tastes and budgets but it's crucial to put some thought into exactly what and how you want to plant, to ensure the hedge meets your specific needs. Saul and Lucy muse on what would be their hedging masterclass.
