The story of how Beth Chatto created her gravel garden on 'possibly the driest, and the most windswept, piece of soil in England' has a message of hope for gardeners everywhere. At the outset she promised herself: 'This garden was not to be irrigated in times of drought. Once established the plants must fend for themselves or die.'

The results, eloquently described by the author and beautifully portrayed in Steven Wooster's specially commissioned photographs taken through the seasons, testify to the triumphant outcome of the adventure.

Showing how her principles can be applied on any scale, this book is an essential read for any gardener facing water shortages and poor soil. Rich with hard-won tips and expressed in Beth Chatto's matchless style, this is a gardening classic.

Industry Reviews

"If ever there was a book to make one a better, more knowledgeable gardener, this is surely it." * The English Garden *
"Beth Chatto combines, as well as anyone at work today and better than most, an eye for good plants, knowledge of their ways and a sensitivity when putting them together." -- Ursula Buchan * Spectator *
"Beth Chatto has to be the plantswoman of the century because she knows how to please plants . . . a desire to emulate these beautiful plantings should be enough to drive all serious gardeners to read the book." -- Mary Keen * Garden *
"Edited with a true artist's eye [...] the beauty of the structural flowering hummocks, the pools, pockets and ribbons of colour, the textural contrasts with punctuating verticals and Mrs. Chatto's now famous plant "veils", is unsurpassed." -- Helen Yemm * The Daily Telegraph *
