Great Dixter- A garden designer’s delight

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.

About the Author:

In 2006 I formed Glorious Gardens, gathering together skilled practitioners to offer not just design but implementation of these designs and maintenance packages where we could look after the gardens once we had created them. Throughout my career I have designed gardens to inspire people with the heart aching beauty of nature, with shapes, colours, moods and proportions to pleasure the body and calm and delight the mind. I am also an artist who works with colour and abstract shapes and I bring this sensitivity to the 4 dimensions of a garden. I am very good at listening to clients and I’m able to draw out the essence of what a client wants for their outdoor space.
