Beth Chatto’s Garden

Elmstead Market Clacton Rd Elmstead Colchester CO7 7DB

01206 822007

In 1960, Beth Chatto took land overgrown with brambles, gravel and boggy ditches and transformed it through carefully matching plants adapted to local conditions.

The result are a nationally renowned, inspirational series of gardens filled with thriving plants – including a specialist gravel garden, water garden and woodland garden.

The on site nursery stocks over 2000 plants, all sold according to their particular growing conditions and the site is a mecca for garden lovers across the country, looking for new ideas and unusual plants.
