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.

For anyone who has visited Great Dixter in England, or has wanted to, this is a great memoir. Written by friends and fellow gardeners this is an affectionate portrait of a passionate, creative and sometimes prickly gardener. Not to be missed, this book is a beautiful and ideal gift for gardeners.

Greatest Gardener of the 20th Century? 16. Februar 2011
Von Book Guy - Veröffentlicht auf
There will be many competing claims, but I would put Christopher Lloyd right at the top of the list of great gardeners, as much for his writing as for his marvelous stewardship of Great Dixter. This book makes it clear that he and his garden were absolutely unique and brilliant. This book is a gift to all of us, as was Christo. It's a masterpiece!

What a wonderful tribute to Christopher Lloyd and to life itself! Some of the remembrances written by friends and family of Christo brought tears to my eyes, so filled were they with love, humor, and history. We encountered him a time or two in our annual visits to Great Dixter and thought he was a marvel - a tad cranky, yes, but so incredibly knowledgeable. This book captures all of that and is filled with beautiful pictures of a truly enchanting place. If you can go to only one great house and garden in England, this is the one. This book is one to go back to over and over again.

This is NOT a garden book. It IS a garden memoir, and is such, is an enjoyable read. It is a series of memoirs and encounters people have had with Christo and Dexter. Sounds like a delightful, unique place to visit. I was quite privileged to attend a seminar by Fergus Garrett about two months ago---at the end of an interminable winter. He is effervescent, delighted with Dixter and with meeting people, and signed my copy of this book. He invited me to come to Dixter and have tea and cake with him!!
Moving tributes as biography 2. Januar 2013
Von SB - Veröffentlicht auf
This book is an entertaining glimpse of the great gardening personality through the eyes of family and friends. The garden and house feature in many comments, but the essence of the book is memories of the person through the eyes of many guests to Dixter. This is not the type of gardening book I usually purchase, as I am much more interested in the gardens than the people, but I am glad to have read it, for he was an intriguing man, and his lifestyle resonated with me.
