Visitors to The Savill Garden throughout September and October will be able to explore and enjoy a display of imaginative and innovative sculpture, forming an exciting exhibition around the Garden. The sculptures are inspired by the natural world. All pieces are available to purchase and standard Savill Garden entry fees apply.

Head of The Savill Garden, Harvey Stephens says:

“The exhibition is intended to appeal to people with gardens of all sizes and the sculptures are affordably priced. The Savill Garden is the perfect backdrop to enjoy these imaginative animal and plant sculptures and visitors will be able to explore by following a map through the Garden to discover the sculptures which will be positioned non-sequentially, encouraging people to  experience the Garden from different perspectives.”

The Savill Garden will look stunning throughout September and October. The Herbaceous Borders will be fantastic in September. Measuring over 100m long and 11m deep, innovative new planting over recent years based on the idea of creating flowing ribbons of intense primary colours from yellow through orange to red and purple, giving the traditional concept of border design a modern twist. Summer Wood will also still be looking good with its sweeping planting of hydrangeas.

For visitors to the Rose Garden, as the roses begin to fade into September, it will be the turn of the majestic grasses miscanthus and molinia to take a lead. With their robust clumps of graceful foliage topped by feathery grass flowers of silvery plum, the miscanthus sways in the breeze, giving another dimension of movement to the design of the Garden.

Through October, visitors can enjoy the glorious changing pallet of autumn colours, with impressive displays reaching their peak in mid to late October. Japanese maples are the backbone of The Savill Garden displays and can be found in a huge range of different forms. Their leaves vary in colour from butter yellow, to orange, red and the intense claret of the famous old cultivar, ‘Ozakazuki’.

After an invigorating walk around The Savill Garden, visit the award-winning Savill Restaurant or the Gallery Coffee Shop in The Savill Building, where you can enjoy freshly made coffee and homemade cakes. Browse in the superb shop which includes Windsor Great Park gifts; together with an outdoor plant area which stocks plants from the Royal Gardens.
