Biodiversity at Great Dixter - showing how gardens can play a role in conserving some of our most threatened species
A re-run of an online lecture given by Great Dixter’s Head Gardener, Fergus Garrett on 27th June 2020.
In his third online lecture Fergus will give the background to the biodiversity audit at Great Dixter, explain the process followed and will explore the reasons for such high diversity, especially in an intensively managed flower garden.
The findings from Great Dixter can directly relate to other gardens, large and small and prove what an important resource these spaces are for conserving some of our most threatened wildlife. Collectively, along with roadside verges, brownfield sites, urban and suburban spaces, gardens can play an important role in the future of many of our native species.
