Great Dixter – Private tour with Fergus Garrett

Thursday 15 September 2022

We are delighted to offer a private tour of the garden and home of the late Christopher Lloyd guided by Fergus Garrett, head gardener. Fergus is also chief executive of the Great Dixter Charitable Trust which has an active programme of education for professional gardeners and others. Fergus has been an integral part of the garden since he joined Christopher there in 1993 and was our speaker at this year’s winter lecture where he talked about some of the seasonal gap fillers he grows at Great Dixter. It will be extra nice to meet him in person.

The day will commence at 11am with the tour. Members will then have a chance to explore the garden before a relaxed picnic lunch. Please bring your own picnic; drinks will be available to purchase on site. After lunch participants will be free to explore at their leisure.

Cost for the day is £14.50 pp. Please make payment when booking (payment details are below the booking form). Bookings will close at 5pm on Thursday 8 September.
