Beth Chatto Garden Visit

Always a treat to visit The Beth Chatto Gardens, a series of incredible spaces near Elmstead Market in Essex. We anticipated a sombre visit, our first since her death in May, but instead were buoyed as we enjoyed her wonderful gardens, by thoughts of what an earnest and inspirational plants-person she was and what an impact she had on the horticultural world.

The dry garden, pictured here, featured an affecting colour palette and interesting combinations and groupings. A great trip for research, inspiration, and reflection.
