If you like informality and cottage garden style herbaceous planted to create outstanding contrasts you will love Great Dixter.
No shortage of welcoming containers adorn the entrance.
July is probably the perfect time of year to visit. The striking colours palettes highlight every feature.
Border after border of delightful combinations of herbaceous with some annuals.
Always a splash of colour. In many spots annuals have been clearly position to maximise the colour in a border.
Accents of colour perfectly positioned.
Great Dixter had character and plants in abundance. It is a delight to go round and there is a charming spot for coffee and light snacks and lunches (sensibly priced) situated by the little Nurseries where you can still buy a few plants cultivated from the garden stock.
