Enjoyable biography of the glorously eccentric gardener and writer, Christopher Lloyd ('Christo'), who created the garden at Dixter, and was the greatest 'plantsman' of the 20th century.

Stephen Anderton has had access for the first time to Christo's chaotic, 100-year archive of papers relating to the house, garden and family.

Reviews

"Christopher Lloyd was already a legend in his lifetime, and this intimate biography adds vivid colour as provocative and challenging as the eye-widening combinations in Christopher's borders. This portrait is so alive, so evocative of his vitality, 'naughtiness' and untold generosity, that it hurts to be reminded of what we have lost." -- Beth Chatto
"[Christopher Lloyd's] reputation as the finest plantsman of the 20th century is underscored in Anderton's affectionate biography of a shy, irascible man who applied a modern sensibility and a personal genius to gardening" -- Iain Finlayson * The Times *
"An unputdownable autobiography" -- Victoria Summerley * Independent *
"A rollicking and compulsive read. Anderton's writing is lithe and perky, especially when it comes to the Lloyd family foibles and dysfunctions. His words dance around these with feline agility." * thinkinggardens.co.uk *
"Stephen Anderton is a clever and witty writer and well known for his lively take on gardening" -- Mary Keen * Daily Telegraph *
