Product Description

Review

... a delightful collection of letters ... offers a unique insight into their successes and failures. Candid, amusing, revealing and informative

(Daily Telegraph)

My favourite read of the year is this entertaining correspondence between our two greatest living gardeners

(Sunday Telegraph Magazine)

What links and distinguishes (in both senses) these two writers is that they never pass on a received opinion about a plant or gardening practice or theory. Everything they say is rooted firmly in observation and experience so their thoughts and opinions carry weight and value

(Hardy Plant)

It is this book, I suspect, that many gardeners would most like to find at the ends of their beds when they wake up on Christmas morning

(Independent on Sunday)

'This is not a book to read all at one sitting, but to keep by your bed and sip when the mood takes you - like a heady and delicious nightcap. If you don't have it already, treat yourself. And if you have any gardeners on your Christmas list, any indecisions about presents are now resolved at a stroke.'

(Gardens Illustrated)

‘There is a genuine sense of honesty in what they reveal, and many insightful passages.’

(English Garden)

About the Author

BETH CHATTO (born 27/06/1923) is a plantswomen, gardener and writer. Whilst having no formal horticultural training, she was inspired by her parents' enthusiastic gardening, her husband's lifelong study of natural associations of plants, and friendship with the great plantsman and artist Sir Cedric Morris.
She has won ten Gold Medals the Chelsea Flower Show and was awarded the Royal Horticultural Society's Victoria Medal of Honour (1987), the Lawrence Memorial Medal and an honorary doctorate from Essex University.
She is the author of many books including her classics The Dry Garden (1978) and The Damp Garden (revised 2004) as well as Beth Chatto's Gravel Garden (2000) and Beth Chatto's Woodland Garden (2002). In 2002 she was awarded the OBE for her services to horticulture. A keen advocate of organic gardening, she has lectured worldwide. Beth lives in Colchester in Essex.
CHRISTOPHER LLOYD was among the best informed, liveliest, most worthwhile gardening writers of our time and the author of a host of classics. He lived in Northiam, East Sussex and died in January 2006.
FERGUS GARRETT, Head Gardener at Great Dixter, first worked at the Beth Chatto Gardens as a student, over twenty years ago, and has remained a close friend of Beth's ever since.
