The Garden House, at Buckland Monachorum, is already a stunning blend of autumnal tones.

Head gardener Nick Haworth said the autumn parade of colour was one of the highlights of the year.

He added: "In the stunning borders of the walled garden, visitors can grab a last taste of summer with the intense autumn colours of late flowering perennials, which the bees and butterflies are still loving too."
Another draw for visitors is the annual appearance of the distinctively spotted, but poisonous and hallucinogenic, fly agaric mushrooms.
