I went to visit Great Dixter in May when the poppies were out, but you can guarantee that it is at it’s peak now. It has stunning herbaceous borders, beautiful flower colour combinations and a lot of different ‘rooms’ of interest.
Go and see it if you can.
Great Dixter was the family home of gardener and gardening writer Christopher Lloyd – it was the focus of his energy and enthusiasm and fuelled over 40 years of books and articles. Now under the stewardship of Fergus Garrett and the Great Dixter Charitable Trust, Great Dixter is an historic house, a garden, a centre of education, and a place of pilgrimage for horticulturists from across the world.
