Sept 29th: Beth Chatto by Catherine Horwood

Beth Chatto OBE was an award winning plantswoman, author and lecturer and probably the most influential British gardener of the last half-century. It seems obvious now, but back in 1960 when she started her garden at Elmstead Market in Essex, the idea that garden plants thrive best in situations similar to their original natural environment was a novel one. It became her trademark principle: Right Plant, Right Place as exemplified by her books: The Damp Garden, The Dry Garden, The Shade Garden, and The Gravel Garden.

Catherine Horwood started her career as a journalist, drifted into academia and out again to be a full-time writer about her favourite things - dress and gardening history. In addition to writing for publications such as Gardens Illustrated and The English Garden, she worked on exhibitions and broadcasts especially on the history of women in horticulture. Her biography, Beth Chatto: a life with plants won the European Garden Book of the Year award in 2020.
