Beth Chatto Gardens
Categories No Categories
Bookings to visit the famous Beth Chatto garden in June are now open. Have a look at their web site at http://www.bethchatto.co.uk/gardens/about.htm. What better way to describe the garden other than looking at their own description:
“See the world famous Gravel Garden, full of drought resistant plants from the Mediterranean, inspired by our low local rainfall and the parched and nutrient poor soil. The sumptuous Water Gardens are a stark contrast with lush green lawn and marginal water plants. The four ponds are shaped to reflect clouds in the sky and are fed by a natural spring that starts on our propagation beds and finishes in a large farm reservoir. Planting here is diverse and colourful with several interesting specimen trees.”
The garden is fully accessible to wheel chair users, but see the web site for further details, particularly noting accessibility including that of the gravel garden. If you have specific queries about this contact me.
Travel is by coach and involves a fairly long ride around the M25 which as you all know can result in variable journey times. So the plan is to leave Rowledge at 09:00 which should, given “normal” traffic conditions take around two and a half hours. On arrival we will be free to wander and have lunch (not organised) and then join a tour by one of their gardeners at two o’clock. We will depart at four o’clock. Full joining instructions will be available later.
The cost is £30.00 per person for members and guests will be able to attend given seat availability at £35.00. Bookings, initially, are just open to members.
