Beth Chatto's Gravel Garden: Drought-resistant Planting Through the Year
One of the great gardeners of our time shares the story of a horticultural victory.
"How on earth did you do it?" visitors ask Beth Chatto--for in creating her gravel garden, she surpassed even her own renowned mastery of unpromising sites. It was the ultimate challenge: to create a decorative garden on three-quarters of an acre of poor, heavily compacted, gravely soil with no watering, even in times of drought. That her plants survived such cruel conditions and blossomed into a garden of such beauty offers fascinating hands-on lessons. Here are thousands of tips on applying her principles, on the poorest of soil in areas with the sparsest rainfall. Chatto's always witty and engaging voice chronicles her voyage of discovery in this delightfully inspiring must-have for any and every gardener.
