Beth Chatto Outing

Beth Chatto Outing 13th May 2022

There were 5 members that went to the garden in Elmstead near Colchester.

Beth Chatto transformed desolate wasteland that was deemed unfit for fruit farming into a series of gardens. The landscape varied dramatically so each garden within the garden has become an example of working with nature to find the right plants for the right place.

There were not very many people and it is very calm and a good outing. Plenty of flowers and insects.

Beth Chatto was a plantswoman, a garden designer and author. She was born in 1923 and she died on 13 May 2018.

Best wishes,
