Just to cheer you up with a dose of green I found these photos of Great Dixter’s garden that I took last Summer.
Great Dixter was built by Edwin Lutyens in 1910 in the Arts and Crafts style as an ad on to a 15th Century farm house.
It was his son, Christopher Lloyd who created the innovative gardens that the house is now famous for.
In 2006 Fergus Garrett took over as Head Gardener and he has carried on the experimental, out of the box planting choices and schemes in the spirit of Christopher Lloyd.
I love the Giant Fennel, Ferula communis, and can’t wait till I find a garden to plant it in.
I’ll be posting more photos in my next blog.
