Videographer Dan Linehan caught up with Peter Dowdall to catch a glimpse of the colours of the autumn garden.

Peter discusses the plant that is the 'seasonal highight of the garden' with an autumn colour which is the 'main feature of this plant.'

The Japanese Maple of is available in thousands of different varieties, the purple leafed form being one of the more popular varieties.

This variety, however, is the green leafed plant, which is hard to believe when it comes into its warm red autumn colour.

The Japanese Maple, with its fine cut foliage, changes colour from spring to autumn, developing from a vibrant green colour to a warm red autumn colour.
