Lecture is at capacity and is SOLD OUT.
Great Dixter in East Sussex, England, is legendary in large part due to the late author and garden writer Christopher Lloyd, whose many articles and books shared with readers his trials and successes in the gardens surrounding his home. The gardens are noted for their bright colors, intensive mixed borders, and complex meadows that flow out to the countryside. Fergus Garrett will present the history of the Great Dixter gardens, focusing on the design, style of gardening, and day-to-day management. He'll talk about color, meadows, pot displays, tropical gardening, and planting for a long season, as well as Christopher Lloyd himself.
Fergus Garrett is head gardener and CEO at Great Dixter, where he has worked for nearly 20 years, combining his exceptional horticultural skills and thorough knowledge of plants to create stunning scenes within the garden. He passes along his expertise through teaching, guest appearances, and mentoring. He has presented more than 350 lectures in over a half dozen countries and has been widely published in magazines and journals. In 2008 he was awarded Associate of Honour by the Royal Horticultural Society.
This lecture will be held at Sotheby's located on 1334 York Avenue, at East 72nd Street, New York City.
