How to create the perfect autumn garden for less

AUTUMN is here and the Chelsea Flower Show was (f)all over it last week. Think colourful autumn gardens with browns, reds and even pumpkin-orange accessories.

It’s inspired me to think of creating a more suitable offering in my garden, and if you’re lucky enough to have access to one, create your own seasonal outdoor space with these switch-ups . . . 

LET THERE BE LIGHT: Warm lights give off a gorgeous glow during autumn evenings and there are lots to choose from. B&Q’s Solar Firefly warm white string lights are excellent value at just £12 for 11.9m (100 LED) lights. I also love the orange glow of the Filson festoon lights that you can get now at, on sale at £16.98, down from £28.99.
SAVE: £12.01

MAKE IT COSY: Drape throws over balcony and patio furniture to add texture and soften edges. Wilko has slashed its waffle throws from £16 to just £8.
SAVE: £8

ADD COLOUR: If you’re not sure which colour to go for, try for their Complete Hardy Garden Perennial Collection. You will get 12 varieties of their autumn colour collection for £19.99, down from £29.99.
SAVE: £10

STEP ON IT: An outdoor rug is the kind of look seen at The Chelsea Flower Show. I adore’s Kirkton House round jute rugs. They were £29.99 but are now only £11.99.
SAVE: £18

DRESS IT UP: Make a truly seasonal autumn garden with orange and red ornaments. I am obsessed with the mirror pumpkins — £19.99 for three — and at night their LED light means they glow. Sign up to their newsletter for 10 per cent off.
SAVE: £1.99

KEEP WARM: Autumn nights relaxing in a hot tub is the way to go. Homebase has the CleverSpa Cotswolds Hot Tub, reduced from £350 to £250.
SAVE: £100
