Reviews of Beth Chatto. A life with plants

House & Garden

October 2019

"This impeccably researched biography... focuses on Beth's personal life, chronicling her childhood, the motivations behind the garden she created... and the process behind her books."

Country Living

November 2019

"Beautifully written and detailed, this is a book to curl up with."

Daily Mail

6 September 2019

"Brilliant, charming and beautiful, she was a horticultural pioneer whose impact continues to this day. Her gardening genius made her the darling of pop stars, aristocrats and royalty yet as this sympathetically written biography reveals, her apparently gilded life was far more turbulent than anyone could have suspected"

Sixty Plus Surfers

September 2019

"...an exceptionally well-researched biography, written with affection and I found it impossible to put down."
