High hopes for shortlisted garden
7:30am Wednesday 18th September 2013 in News
WELCOME to one of Britain’s favourite gardens.
The Beth Chatto Gardens in Elmstead Market is on the shortlist for the nation’s most popular garden category in the BBC Countryfile Magazine Awards 2013.
It was chosen in the top 10 by Gardens Illustrated magazine’s Sorrel Everton, who praised its transformation in 1960 from a “wasteland of brambles, parched gravel and boggy ditches”.
In one of the driest areas in the country Mrs Chatto, who celebrates her 90th birthday this year, ensured the right plants for the conditions were used so they could thrive.
People can support Beth Chatto Gardens by emailing email@example.com or visiting www.countryfile.com/awardsvote by September 30.
