Using seedheads to create winter interest is something we've always done at the Gardens, and it can benefit wildlife too. These plants create some beautifully frosty sillhouettes and are well worth leaving in place over winter for their architectural value.
Beth Chatto's Plants & Gardens
7.5 acres of garden, based on ecological planting: the right plant for the right place. Created by award-winning gardener, author and lecturer Beth Chatto OBE VMH, who won 10 gold medals at the Chelsea Flower Show, in the 70s and 80s.
Now, they are an inspiration to gardeners and garden lovers and we welcome visitors from all over the world. We grow 90% of the plants we sell in the Nursery and stock over 2,000 varieties of plants.
