AS the gardening season comes to an end there are still a handful of openings in September, and most of the big homes and gardens stay open to the public until October to show off the autumnal colours.
One up and coming event worth marking in your diary is being held on September 3-4.
Althorp’s Garden Art Weekend, includes talks by garden experts Nick Hamilton from Barnsdale and local boy James Alexander Sinclair. There will also be ‘live’ wood carving by chainsaw artists Peter Schwartz and Carrie Yeun. More info to come.
