Synopsis

The Damp Garden by Beth Chatto

The gardening classicTHE DAMP GARDEN presents a vivid picture of a garden in the making, yet it remains first and foremost a practical guide for all gardeners, whether they have a pond or stream, or just a small area of damp ground. In revealing what has worked in her own garden, Beth Chatto passes on wealth of advice gleaned from her personal experience. She provides detailed - and accessible - ideas on garden management, plans for every type of soil and situation, nearly twenty specially tailored lists to help with planting in various conditions, and descriptions of over 1,000 suitable plants for making the most of damp ground.
