Beth Chatto's Gravel Garden: Drought-resistant planting through the year by Beth Chatto, 2000

Reviewed by: Tracy Mehlin
Review date: 2002-05-05

Droughty summers are a mainstay of the Pacific Northwest and water shortages are only going to get worse. Here's a hands-on solution by one of the world's finest gardeners living in a part of England that shares our cool but dry summers. This book requires some work on the reader's part as the plant names are in Latin, but the proven design examples and plant selections are well worth the effort. Excellent photographs hold the reader's attention and clearly say dry is beautiful.
