Growers of trees, shrubs and hardy herbaceous perennial garden plants near Newport, Shropshire

Every year is different

But this year seems more different than most….the cold nights we had through late August have fooled lots of plants into thinking that it’s autumn already, and in the last couple of weeks many of them have started their end of season closedown.    The Koelreuteria paniculata, which was not showing much autumn colour until October last year, has looked like this for a week or so now :

Koelreuteria paniculata is one of our favourite trees for autumn colour – but we’d prefer it to wait until autumn!

Lots of other trees and shrubs around the place are also looking distinctly autumnal, and it’s looking as if the year which started early, is going to finish early too.
