The Simple Things - - ESCAPE -

Some seven miles from Ded­ham, south of Colch­ester, is Beth Chatto’s gar­den. It’s so dif­fer­ent from any other that you’re sure to learn some­thing new. Beth be­gan her clever nat­u­ral­is­tic plant­ing that mim­ics na­ture in the 60s and un­til she died ear­lier this year, al­most 95, she lived in the fam­ily home in the grounds. Among many achieve­ments she trans­formed an old car park into a gravel gar­den that has never been wa­tered; a huge gum tree and drought re­sis­tant plants have made it their own. It’s fas­ci­nat­ing to wan­der through and the nurs­ery here sells many of the un­usual plants, too.
