Fergus Garrett: Designing with Plants the Great Dixter Way

Free Alston Lecture


Appointed in 1993 as Head Gardener of Great Dixter by Christopher Lloyd, Fergus Garrett continues to keep the garden constantly changing throughout the season by trying out new plants and plant-combinations. Fergus believes in passing on his knowledge through national and international student- and volunteer programmes at Dixter and through worldwide lectures he gives every year. Fergus is keen on plant communities in the wild and especially plants native to Turkey. Among other honours, Fergus was given the Royal Horticultural Society Associate of Honour in 2008 and in 2015, the Veitch Memorial Medal for outstanding contribution to the practise of horticulture.

Presented in partnership with The Garden Conservancy.

The Philip and Alston Lecture Series is made possible by the generous contribution of the Charles Loridans Foundation.

The lectures are free; no reservation required.
