Autumn is well underway now with richly coloured leaves and berries to be found across the Arboretum. Look out for the Japanese strawberry tree off Willesely Drive which is covered with juicy-looking red fruits.

And in Old Arboretum the delicate pinks of the pretty group of Spindles on Pool Avenue should stand out against this week’s blue skies.
