The impact of the summer heatwave on our plants and gardens; our head gardener Åsa Gregers-Warg explains what we're doing to mitigate the effects here in the driest part of the UK, and the Gravel Garden plants (never irrigated) which are still doing well.
The Beth Chatto Gardens
These gardens 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 between Christmas and the New Year.
