Planting in summer may well be more hard work than at other times of the year, but providing it’s done properly, you should find you’ve set your plants up for life. Beth and her husband, Andrew, embraced the conditions that were given to them here in Essex and made the decision to work with what they had, rather than trying to fight against it.
The Beth Chatto Gardens
Welcome to the Beth Chatto Gardens. The Gardens are situated in Elmstead Market, a 10 minute drive from Colchester. They were created by award winning gardener, author and lecturer Beth Chatto, who won 10 gold medals at the Chelsea Flower Show, in 10 consecutive years. Now, they are an inspiration to gardeners and garden lovers and we welcome visitors from all over the world. We are also a renowned nursery and stock over 2000 varieties of plants, many propagated from plants in the Gardens. When you visit, don't miss our guided garden walks, free gardening talks, acclaimed Tearoom and tempting Gift Shop. We are open every day, all year round, except for Christmas and New Year.
