Fergus Garrett, Head Gardener at Great Dixter, generously offered a selection of specialist plants, which were planted in the Gallery’s beautiful garden. Tools, hurdles, and benches from Great Dixter were also exhibited; these are made entirely from wood grown in the surrounding woodlands. Fergus presented two lectures on the same evening at the Joanna Bird Gallery, entitled ‘Designing with Plants the Great Dixter Way’. Both lectures were fully subscribed and enthusiastically received. The lecture can be seen below.
All proceeds went to the Joanna Bird Foundation and the Great Dixter Charitable Trust.
Wednesday 14th July, 6.00pm and 7.30pm, at the Joanna Bird Gallery, 19 Grove Park Terrace, London W4 3QE. This event was held in association with the Joanna Bird Foundation and the Great Dixter Charitable Trust.
