Beth Chatto Gardens

The garden of a well-known nursery is in a shallow valley in front of the house. The valley contains a series of pools which are planted with good varieties of good plants, all well-grown. The former car park has been made into a beautiful gravel garden which could inspire a number of gardeners to do without lawns.
