Beth Chatto's Green TapestryBook - 1999
Beth Chatto is one of the great 'names' of gardening. Her knowledge is rooted in over 35 year's practical experience, and she is celebrated for her use of unusual perennials, as well as her mastery of difficult growing conditions. Beth's beautiful Essex garden, created from wasteland in the mid-1960s, is a world-renowned site where an extraordinary range of plants is cultivated. In this book she explains how she has used different natural variations of the site to create widely differing habitats. Her rules of planting are not difficult to follow: select the plants that will thrive naturally in the conditions you have in your garden, and successful cultivation should follow!
