  • Christopher Lloyd’s garden in East Sussex is an example of cottage gardening on a larger scale. The Manor of Dixter is first noted in 1220 and structural additions were made again in 1464. In 1910 the English architect Edwin Lutyens restored Great Dixter and designed the gardens. Christopher Lloyd, the author and lecturer, who has lived at Great Dixter since 1921, died on January 27th 2006, aged 84. All the team at Dixter, headed up by Fergus Garrett, head gardener and Christo’s closest friend, are greatly saddened by this enormous loss. The team is committed to carrying on Christo’s work and keeping Great Dixter and its garden open for the public to enjoy. Christopher Lloyd, was an expert in creating the essence of cottage gardens with bountiful plantings of regulated informality. The garden is composed of a series of small gardens including a fine topiary garden, rose garden, kitchen garden – an attractive mingling of vegetables and flowers – a large orchard with many pockets of wild flowers and a magnificent herbaceous border in summer, truly a joy for any gardener to visit.
