The Eclectic Gardener: an interview with Fergus Garrett, head gardener at Great Dixter
by Pauline LAVAGNE d'ORTIGUE
The gardens at Great Dixter, in East Sussex, are often quoted as the epitome of English plantsmanship. They were originally designed in 1910 by Edwin Lutyens, who started planning New Delhi shortly afterwards. What also makes these gardens very special is that year after year, they have been lovingly re-planted by their original owners, Nathaniel and Daisy Lloyd, and then more famously by their son, Christopher Lloyd, in close collaboration with Fergus Garrett, his head gardener.
Each Spring, Summer and Autumn, the bold experiments in colour and form in the topiary, the mixed borders, the exotic garden and the meadows attract horticulture enthusiasts from all over the world.
When the charismatic Christopher Lloyd passed away in January 2006, Fergus Garrett took the helm, with just as much charm and enthusiasm, in order to keep these extraordinary gardens alive and open to the public.
