Beth Chatto's Green Tapestry Summary

Beth Chatto's Green Tapestry by Beth Chatto

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. Chapters include:

Principles of Planting
* The Entrance Garden
* The Open Walks
* The Shade Garden
* The Dry Garden
* The Reservoir Garden

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!

The book also includes a comprehensive Plant Guide and Glossary

Beth Chatto's Green Tapestry Reviews

`I know of no more honest writer. She describes as she sees, imaginately but never over the top; always so as to make me murmur an echoing
"this is as it is". Everything is from direct observation and experience. She is never woolly off the point. Beth Chatto knows how people think and behave and pinpoints our foibles and weaknesses with commnsense and understanding.'
Christopher Lloyd
