The classic guide for gardeners, reissued with a beautiful new look.
In today's climate of increasingly hot summers and dry winters, gardeners need guidance on plants that will thrive in dry conditions. Beth Chatto's classic book has revolutionised the understanding of the problems involved and opened up many opportunities that wait to be exploited.
In her famous DRY GARDEN she uses plants that need very little attention and are naturally adapted to flourish in dry conditions to provide a year-round display of beautiful foliage and flowers.
Beth Chatto runs her own Garden and Nursery for Unusual Plants at Elmstead Market near Colchester. Winner of ten Gold Medals at Chelsea, she also holds the Royal Horticultural Society?s Victoria Medal of Honour and an honorary doctorate from Essex University for her services to horticulture. She is the author of a host of gardening classics and is also co-author of Dear Friend and Gardener, written with her long-standing friend and fellow gardener, Christopher Lloyd.
