Autumn in Beth Chatto’s garden

Beth Chatto’s garden is inspirational for any garden lovers. Although my recent visit was not blessed with much sunshine, the plants still glowed with their autumn foliage. There were so many breathtaking examples of how to combine colour, texture and shape within the artful planting design. The cafe has beautiful views and great food too! I’m sure it’s a great place all year round and easily accessible for those of us in East Anglia.
