Beth Chatto’s Green Tapestry Revisited

First published in 1989, Beth Chatto’s Green Tapestry described in words and photographs how Beth Chatto created her now world-famous gardens, and the thinking that lay behind them. Beth Chatto’s Green Tapestry Revisited brings the story up to date. Given the current issues about climate change, Beth’s ethos of choosing those plants that are best suited to the prevailing conditions could not be more appropriate. Her original text has been revised and updated by David Ward, Gardens and Nursery Director at Beth Chatto’s Plants and Gardens, and Asa Gregers-Warg, the head gardener, both of whom worked with Beth during her lifetime and continue to work at the gardens to this day. This new edition highlights the changes – all in line with sustainable planting – that have been made in the 30 years since The Green Tapestry was first published, including the subsequent addition of the Woodland Garden, the major transformation of the Entrance Garden into the much-acclaimed drought-resistant Gravel Garden, the creation of the Scree Garden and, most recently, the substantially redesigned Reservoir Garden. A feature of the original book – the planting plans for sample beds in key areas of the gardens – have also been updated in this edition as have the entries in the practical Plant Directory to some of Beth’s favourite perennials. The foreword is by Julia Boulton, Managing Director of Beth Chatto’s Plants and Gardens.
