The Beth Chatto Gardens began in 1960. From an overgrown wasteland of brambles, parched gravel and boggy ditches it has been transformed using plants adapted by nature to thrive in different conditions, and an inspirational, informal garden has developed. The accompanying plant nursery stocks over 2000 plants, all sold by growing conditions. While the light and airy tearoom allow visitors to relax and take in their surroundings over a homemade cake.
We later visit the Wilkins & Son visitor centre at Tiptree for some retail therapy and maybe some afternoon tea!!
