The Well-Tempered Garden: A New Edition Of The Gardening.

Posted by 2018 article


Christopher Hamilton Lloyd , OBE (2 March 1921 – 27 January 2006) was a British gardener and author. He was the 20th-century chronicler for thickly planted, labour-intensive country gardening. [1]

Lloyd was born in Great Dixter , into an upper-middle-class family, the youngest of six children. In 1910, his father, Nathaniel Lloyd (an Arts and Crafts designer of posters and other images for confectionery companies), purchased Great Dixter, a manor house in Northiam , East Sussex near the south coast of England. Edwin Lutyens was hired to renovate and extend the house and advise on the structure of the garden. Nathaniel Lloyd loved gardens, designed some of the garden himself, and imparted that love to his son. Lloyd learned the skills required of a gardener from his mother Daisy, who did the actual gardening and who introduced him to Gertrude Jekyll .

After Rugby School , he attended King's College, Cambridge , where he read modern languages before entering the Army during World War II. After the war he received his bachelors in Decorative Horticulture (Designing and Planning) from Wye College , University of London , in 1949. He stayed on there as an assistant lecturer in horticulture until 1954.
