For a lot of people a constantly damp or boggy soil is potentially a problem, but that needn’t be the case. There are many plants that will survive and indeed thrive in such conditions. I feel these plants should be considered for your own garden if you have a wet or damp soil.
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.
