About Beth Chatto Gardens:
Beth Chatto designed her gardens to be a haven: a place of peace and meditation. She established it in the 1960s on land that was inhospitable to many plants. Working closely with her husband and her team, she overcame the challenges to create a beautiful garden that now covers around 7 acres and is open to the public.
Her gardens and nursery are now one of the nation’s favourites and have influenced and inspired a generation of gardeners. They continue to grow and develop with dedicated and knowledgeable staff, many of whom learnt their trade working alongside Beth Chatto.
