We are excited to announce that renowned plantsman Fergus Garrett will be giving our seasonal gardening lecture on Sunday 1 April at Barr Village Hall.
Head Gardener of Great Dixter, one of the UK’s most famous gardens, Fergus will be talking on Succession Planting, the multi-layered planting practised throughout Great Dixter’s mixed borders using bulbs, annuals, perennials and biennials to give a long flowering season.
Fergus joined Great Dixter as Head Gardener in 1992 and worked closely with owner Christopher Lloyd as gardener and friend during an important time in the garden’s development. Now he combines his full-time, hands-on gardening role at Dixter with lecturing, writing articles, serving on Royal Horticultural Society committees and, as Chief Executive of the Great Dixter Charitable Trust, moving the east Sussex garden forward in ever more exciting directions.
Refreshments and delicious home made cakes will be available from the Barr Village Tearoom after the event.
Raffle with generous prizes in support of the Great Dixter Charitable Fund (50 %) and CHAS (50%).
