Join us for a rare opportunity to hear Fergus Garrett, renowned plantsman and head gardener at Great Dixter, as he discusses the thought process involved in putting together vibrant plant combinations where saturated and unsaturated colors are mixed and contrasting colors are used to give maximum effect. This, along with undulating shapes, contrasting textures, strong architectural features, and a sense of adventure, results in highly stimulating gardens that make Great Dixter a powerful and vibrant experience. After his presentation, local plantsman Roy Diblik will join him to further the discussion.
