Online Lecture – Felix Garrett – Biodiversity at Dixter – 27.6.20

Fascinating zoom lecture by Felix Garrett on the processes they’ve taken at Dixter – based on original theories by Christopher & Daisy Lloyd – to enhance and merge biodiversity with the local ecology.

A meticulously detailed biodiversity audit was carried out and multiple rare species identified.

This biodiverse approach enhances both the philosophy and sustainability of the garden – but also the naturalistic look which visitors to Dixter are so fond of. Everything matters – from spiders to slugs – flora and fauna an all the way up the food chain.

As a result we plan to recommit to the organic methods – wherever possible – and also to bring some further meadow areas into the Mill House garden from the paddock where it’s so extensive into the main garden’s shady areas.
