He calls her the chocolate girl
Cause he thinks she melts when he touches her
She knows she's the chocolate girl
Cause she's broken up and swallowed
And wrapped in bits of silver

    2 hours packed with information and glorious pictures. The man has such passion.

    It's repeated on Saturday.  You have to book, according to your link, Punkdoc... I'll try and watch it.  Thanks!

    There is an archive of lectures which you can buy, if you are not able to watch it live on Saturday. £15 each, which seems reasonable.

    Didn’t see this one, have seen the documentary on BBC 4 and lived close by before moving here, a beautiful place.

    He drove all the way down to Bath from Great Dixter (having worked all day) one January night to give a talk to our Gardening Club - absolute inspiration! Then he drove all the way back again. The man's a genius.

    This is so useful and beautiful - especially the last ten minutes. Thanks to @punkdoc for recommending it. It does stir up a longing to move to Sussex.

    I think that maybe they should have put the last ten minutes first.

    This is a wonderful free podcast (no ads) by Fergus from Dixter on biodiversity at Dixter and how to build biodiversity in our gardens, why, how and where.

    Fergus is such a star.


    This is a Fergus lecture on biodiversity at Dixter. So inspiring. Paid for but very worth it.
