A Taste of Autumn

Posted by Rosemoor Garden on 23 Sep 2009 at 11:10 AM

It’s that time of year again! RHS Garden Rosemoor is getting ready for its ‘Taste of Autumn’ festival, which this year runs from 26 September – 26 October. The month will be dedicated to championing local produce, autumn flavours and growing your own veg through a series of special Garden events.

This year the humble apple takes centre stage, with Apple Day being held on Sunday 11 October (10am – 5pm). 2009 marks the bicentenary of the Bramley apple, and RHS Garden Rosemoor is one of the lucky 200 places to receive a cutting from the original tree and keep the Bramley tradition alive. To carry on the apple theme, the English Apple Art Exhibition, featuring watercolours by Rosie Sanders, is being held from Saturday 3 – Sunday 18 October (11am – 4pm).

There are plenty of other events taking place over the month too, including the Taste of the West Country Food Fair, the Fungi Foray and Pumpkin Day.
