With an eye for details and a uniquely engaging style, Beth Chatto's written descriptions are the result of personal experience and close observations gleaned from a lifetime of living among her plants. This new edition must no longer be considered a catalogue, but rather a bringing together of the plants that she has used over the years to create her gardens.
"Beth Chatto is one of the most influential gardeners of all time. Her handbooks are packed with beautiful descriptions. Seeing the plant through her eyes makes them precious to every gardener and plant lover."
– Fergus Garrett, Head Gardener, Great Dixter
