In my last blog I gave some background to Great Dixter.
One striking element to the gardens is both the house and strong, dark greens of the Yew topiary. They provide a strong tonal background to the frothier temporal planting of perennials and annuals.
This garden is also well known for its use of rare plants and unusual combinations.
They beds are saturated in planting detail and even though the gardens are not big one can spend hours there immersed in each ‘garden room’.
