Beth Chatto's Woodland Garden Summary

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.

Beth Chatto's Woodland Garden Reviews

Internationally renowned gardener and garden writer Beth Chatto treats gardeners to a horticultural history of her woodland garden in Essex. She has combined horticultural knowledge, plant ethnography and an artist's eye to produce a garden lush in growth, floriferous and fully in tune with its woodland setting. Her philosophy of only planting a plant in conditions where it would occur naturally in the wild ensures happy, healthy plants and a little research rewards tenfold as Beth shows in this engaging account of her world-acclaimed garden. Accompanied by the photographs of award winning photographer Steven Wooster, this will open gardener's eyes to what many see as a "difficult to plant" area. She gives inspiration and understanding of the wide range of woodland plants available today making the choice easier and more successful for the everyday plantsperson at the same time as providing an entertaining and informative read. - Lucy Watson
