Beth Chatto's Woodland Garden Summary

Beth Chatto's Woodland Garden: Shade-Loving Plants for Year-Round Interest 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 us on a guided tour of the maze of paths that weave in and out of the trees. Illustrated with sumptuous photographs taken by Steve Wooster, this will be an extraordinarily beautiful book that conjures up the cool dark mystery of the forest as well as making gardeners think again about that dark, dry spot at the bottom of their garden.
