Beth Chatto's Woodland Garden by Beth Chatto
As Beth Chatto's reputation for choosing plants for problem areas grew, she started to run out of space to experiment with plants for dry shade, so when the 1987 winds ripped through a small wooded area next to her garden, she jumped at the opportunity to expand. This book tells the story of her woodland garden. In her inimitable style, she takes the reader on a guided tour of the maze of paths that weave in and out of the trees. Illustrated with photographs taken by Steve Wooster, the book conjures up the cool dark mystery of the forest and makes gardeners think again about that dark, dry spot at the bottom of their garden.
