The View from Great Dixter: Christopher Lloyd's Garden Legacy
picture
Features:-
Expansive herbaceous borders, orchid-filled meadows enveloped by old stone, precision-carved topiary, and an air of gentle eccentricity make Great Dixter the quintessential English country garden. Yet the impact of Christopher Lloyd’s unique creation extends way beyond the gardening world and affects all who pass through it in a very particular way.

In this intimate collection of written and photographic contributions, Christopher Lloyd’s wide circle of family and friends describe what Great Dixter means to them. Food, poetry, music and plants feature large with one guest recounting the delight of eating an exquisitely cooked turbot and another how a bloom of magnolia was analyzed with botanical precision during the course of dinner. Visitors remember the feel of the centuries-old floorboards underfoot, the thrill of waking early to peer out on topiary enshrouded in fog, and many describe how, in one way or another, Great Dixter changed their lives.

This valuable record encapsulates what makes time spent at Great Dixter in particular, and to some extent time spent in all gardens, so irreplaceable. It adds an important layer to our understanding of Christopher Lloyd’s achievements and spurs us on to new heights in our own gardening endeavors.

Colour for Adventurous Gardeners
picture
Features:-
This book on gardening with colour by its most adventurous exponent Christopher Lloyd OBE - is now available in paperback as well as hardback. With a chapter on every colour from 'Challenging Orange' to 'Sophisticated Black', Lloyd explores each colour in relation to others and discusses the rules in order to encourage the gardener to break them. If a colour is 'polite', Lloyd certainly knows how to liven it up without making it vulgar. In an all-white border, he advocates a touch of clear pink to make you sit up; he suggests bright scarlet rose hips in a purple bed to introduce a note of rebellion. Stunning photographs by Jonathan Buckley enhance this superb collection of colour combinations. Colour for Adventurous Gardeners is opinionated, controversial and the most colourful book on plant associations ever written.
