Cornwall's Indian Summer
3:16pm 22nd September 2014
(Updated 3:16pm 22nd September 2014)
Cornwall basks in that Indian summer.
The Met Office reckons September will stay warm and sunny in the Duchy, on top of the summer sizzler.
Forecasters are predicting highs of 18C for the rest of the month.
Gary Long is the head gardener at Trewithen near Truro.
He says it is good for business and for the plants: "More people, hopefully, into the whole county as well and Cornwall's known for its gardens so that can only be a plus and as probably most people have noticed, there's been a real good fruit harvest this year as well, in the hedgerows and in the gardens, so we've got blackberries and hazeLnuts - they've been a really good crop; the autumn interest is going to be far better this year.
"For the plants it's perfect and we have autumn flowering camellias which need the warmth to set the wood to make the wood go hard for the flower buds to form so again, we'll have a better flowering autumn as well as next spring."
