Autumn at Batsford Arboretum


Batsford Arboretum

Batsford are gearing up for the annual blaze of autumn colour at the 56 acre arboretum near Moreton-in-Marsh.
 
Home to one of the largest private collections of trees and shrubs in the country, Batsford Arboretum is famed for putting on a show-stopping display of reds, golds and yellows thanks to the magnificent collection of Japanese maples, Sorbus, Euonymus and cherries.
 
As well as amazing colour, visitors to Batsford can soak up the smells of autumn as the Cercidiphyllum japonicum – known as the Katsura trees - provide a sweet burnt sugar smell as you wander around the arboretum.
 
Autumn is, of course, nature’s planting time as well – perfect for establishing plants before the winter cold sets in, giving them a head start come the spring. The Plant Centre at Batsford offers visitors a huge choice of quality plants in a beautiful walled garden setting.  You’ll find a great selection of Acers too if you want to try to replicate the arboretum in your own garden, as well as winter bedding and lots of beautiful spring flowering bulbs to get planted now.
 
Keep an eye out for the ‘autumn watch’ indicator on Batsford’s website - www.batsarb.co.uk - or check their Facebook, Instagram or Twitter pages for updates.
