Autumn at Kew Gardens

It feels like Kew Gardens is upping its garden design efforts – or perhaps I’m just more aware of them. The grass and salvia borders look absolutely stunning in the autumn sun, and it was exciting to see the new 300 metre long Broad Walk borders turn from muddy patches in spring to being stuffed with young perennials waiting to burst out next year.
