Drought-Resistant Planting: Lessons From Beth Chatto's Gravel Garden
picture
Features:-

The story of how Beth Chatto created her gravel garden on 'possibly the driest, and the most windswept, piece of soil in England' has a message of hope for gardeners everywhere. At the outset she promised herself: 'This garden was not to be irrigated in times of drought. Once established the plants must fend for themselves or die.'

The results, eloquently described by the author and beautifully portrayed in Steven Wooster's specially commissioned photographs taken through the seasons, testify to the triumphant outcome of the adventure.

Showing how her principles can be applied on any scale, this book is an essential read for any gardener facing water shortages and poor soil. Rich with hard-won tips and expressed in Beth Chatto's matchless style, this is a gardening classic.

Gardening with Grasses
picture
Features:-
Ornamental grasses are among the most important plants used by garden designers. This book shows how to use them to transform a garden. Grasses lend an architectural quality to a garden; they provide texture, background interest and a year-round range of subtle colours. They are also highly versatile, hardy and reliable. Many are evergreen and some perform better in shade, particularly useful in awkward corners where other plants struggle. The distinctive appearance of grasses makes them invaluable in combinations with flowering annuals or textured perennials. A catalogue of over 150 varieties and cultivars gives details of the best ornamental grasses, sedges and bamboos for a wide range of garden situations.

A Year in the Life of Beth Chatto's Gardens
picture
Features:-
Beth Chatto was possibly the most influential British gardener of the second half of the twentieth century. When she started to make her garden on an overgrown area of wasteland in Essex in 1960 she was faced with a range of widely differing conditions, from drought-stricken gravel through woodland to dense, silty bog. Applying the principles of ecological gardening, she set about finding plants that would suit these very different, awkward situations. The gardens she made - the Mediterranean garden on the sunny slopes, the shady woodland garden, the damp garden for water-loving plants, the drier than dry gravel garden - have become legendary. In this book photographer Rachel Warne has traced all these different gardens through the course of a year.

She is the author of many books including her classics The Dry Garden (1978) and The Damp Garden (revised 2004) as well as Beth Chatto's Gravel Garden (2000) and Beth Chatto's Woodland Garden (2002). An engaging exchange of letters with Christopher Lloyd, Dear Friend and Gardener, was published in 1998.

In 2002 she was awarded the OBE for her services to horticulture. A keen advocate of organic gardening, she has lectured worldwide.
