Beth Chatto and the Garden Museum

The story of how the Beth Chatto Gardens grew out of a patch of wasteland at the back of her husband’s Essex fruit farm and how this became one of the best-loved gardens in Britain is told through private archives, paintings and photographs.

The exhibition will examine the subtlety of her approach to design and explore important influences that include her husband Andrew’s life-long study of the natural association of plants, the work of her friend the artist Sir Cedric Morris, her early career as an instructor for the Flower Club Movement and her interest in music and architecture.

The Garden Museum Reopening

18th November 2008

After four months of hard work and preparations the Garden Museum will open its doors on the 18 November with a new identity, a new interior and the first gallery in Britain dedicated to gardens and gardening.
