Fergus and the garden team at Great Dixter are known for their experimental gardening methods. The result is a garden that changes not only through the seasons but from year to year.
Courses at Great Dixter complement Fergus’ Study Days by illustrating these changes, and helping participants get to grips with the practical side of things.
Great Dixter is a renowned and innovative garden that depends on a high degree of craftsmanship to maintain and develop its year round display. This is an advanced course, exploring and teaching the skills necessary for establishing, developing and managing a garden in this style. Teaching takes place monthly through the year from February to January.
The garden at Great Dixter provides the perfect setting for students to learn about the art and craft of garden design. This innovative course is held one day per month and as the course unfolds you will be able to observe and study the garden throughout the changing seasons.
