This is a unique place, created by the woman who has given the garden its name (it was originally called White Barn House when it first opened in 1973) and she has now become internationally renowned because of her plant philosophy and best-selling books.Beth Chatto, plantswoman extraordinaire, started creating this garden in 1960 with her husband.A visit to the Beth Chatto Gardens in Essex is a must-do if you are anywhere in the vicinity, especially over summer when the gravel garden is in full bloom. The Beth Chatto Gardens are in Essex, just a few miles outside Colchester.They are open all year round (apart from two weeks between Christmas and New Year), but do check the opening times to plan your visit.The Beth Chatto gardens include a plant nursery which sells more than 2,000 plants, many of which are cuttings from the gardens.Visitors can also enjoy guided garden walks, free gardening talks and a gift shop.There is plenty of free car parking and even space for a coach or two. and other summer beauties creating a living tapestry of colour with a scented, ethereal aura.Poppies, grasses, agapanthus, sedums and verbenas all jostle for space in the action packed borders creating colour and interest for the summer months.
A gardener, author and lecturer, Beth Chatto has won many awards including an OBE from the Queen for services to horticulture.There was nothing here at all when she arrived here more than 50 years ago, but Beth and her husband Andrew set to work to turn this into the paradise that survives today - seven acres of joy, created out of a neglected hollow that was boggy in parts and arid as a desert elsewhere.Together they pioneered the idea of using plants adapted by nature to problem places, using shade-loving plants in areas with little direct light and drought-tolerant plants in dry places.In addition, there is a thriving commercial nursery on site, selling direct to visiting customers and also through mail order.The majority of the plants are propagated on site, through cuttings, seed, division and other specialist propagation techniques.
A tearoom within the gardens allows visitors to relax with a beautiful view of the gardens while enjoying freshly-prepared food.
