That's why we offer an extensive range of shrubs and trees that are perfect for elevating your autumn garden. Whether you're an experienced gardener or a beginner, our online and in-store offerings will help you create a stunning outdoor sanctuary. Let's dive into the world of autumn gardening with Ripley Nurseries!

A Tapestry of Colour

One of the most captivating aspects of autumn is the explosion of colour as leaves change from green to shades of red, orange, and gold. To make the most of this natural spectacle, consider adding deciduous trees and shrubs to your garden. Ripley Nurseries offers a diverse selection of options, including:

  • Japanese Maples: Renowned for their brilliant autumn foliage, Japanese maples come in various sizes and leaf shapes. They add a touch of elegance and fiery hues to your garden.
  • Cotinus coggygria (Smoke Bush): Known for its unique, smoke-like plumes of flowers, the smoke bush turns a striking shade of red in autumn, making it a stunning focal point.
  • Liquidambar styraciflua (Sweet Gum): These trees boast a kaleidoscope of colours in autumn, from deep reds to purples. They offer both shade and visual appeal.
  • Euonymus alatus (Burning Bush): With vibrant scarlet foliage in autumn, this shrub is aptly named. It's perfect for adding a pop of colour to your garden borders.

Year-Round Interest

While the autumn foliage steals the spotlight, it's essential to plan for year-round interest in your garden. Incorporating evergreen shrubs and trees ensures that your outdoor space remains inviting, even when autumn turns to winter. Ripley Nurseries' range includes:

  • Rhododendrons and Azaleas: These evergreen shrubs offer lush, green foliage and stunning blooms in spring. They continue to provide structure and colour throughout the year.
  • Hollies (Ilex): Known for their glossy, spiky leaves and vibrant berries, hollies are a versatile addition to any garden, providing interest in all seasons.
  • Conifers: With their diverse forms and textures, conifers bring year-round beauty to your garden. From towering pines to compact junipers, there's a conifer for every space.
  • Camellias: These evergreen shrubs produce exquisite flowers in winter and early spring, adding a touch of elegance when the garden might otherwise seem dormant.
