Autumn's embrace

This issue we explore how designer Alistair Baldwin has taken a historic burgage plot and created a garden that looks to the heritage of the site and how the space can enhance the owners’ lives as a garden retreat.

We visit a Somerset orchard to discover how cider makers Sam and Beccy Leach are working magic to transform their orchard and restore the traditional cider apple.

Hunting Brook’s Jimi Blake chooses his ten favourite plants for November. Alison Jenkins combines houseplants to create unusual arrangements with multiple elements. And Richard Wilford recommends Hippeastrum to bring a burst of bright colour.

In an extract from photographer Andrew Montgomery’s new book, see stunning images that celebrate the austere beauty of gardens in winter

Plus, we ask some of our key horticultural experts to pick out a botanical ornament, past or present that informs their sensibilities. It’s a wonderful insight into the significance a simple object can hold.
