Death of Christopher Lloyd

From the BBC's web site: "Writer and gardener dies aged 84 Writer and gardener Christopher Lloyd has died just months after launching a 3m campaign to preserve the house and garden to which he devoted his life. Mr Lloyd, who was 84, died in hospital in Hastings, East Sussex on Friday. He had a stroke after surgery on his leg, his great nephew Chris Lloyd said. Great Dixter, at Northiam, near Rye has been in the Lloyd family since 1910 and Mr Lloyd wanted to ensure it survived. He set up the Great Dixter Charitable Trust to take over when he died. "

From what I can see, CL didn't like any kind of 'formulaic' gardening, or approach to gardening. He was very scathing about the 'instant' garden tv programmes and that sort of approach to gardening. He wrote something recently about the Trust needing about millions which he didn't go into detail about, so I don't know whether he actually owned it, or not. On another occasion, he said that he couldn't think of anything more awful than the place falling into the hands of the National Trust! I imagine Felix will remain there, looking after and guiding things - I certainly hope so!
