The Beth Chatto Gardens above The area beneath the Great Oak below The north-facing clay bank
The plan shows the whole garden. The main areas of shade about which I write are the Wood Garden, the Little Grassy Wood and the Long Shady Walk, which at one end curves round to a north-facing clay bank and at the other is shaded by an ancient oak which keeps the sun off a mixed planting of shrubs.
