An East Sussex Odyssey and the jewel in the crown, Great Dixter

Well this time I’ll let the pictures do the talking. And I nearly didn’t call in this time around to Great Dixter and am so glad I did. I don’t recall that I have visited in Spring before (it is a stupendous garden in late summer and autumn) and I did attend one of Fergus Garrett’s day course on succession planting and perhaps that was earlier in the year. But Oh My Goodness – what a show there is just now and obviously so much more to come. Giant Fennel is on my plant lust list now – but then again to choose just one thing? Impossible. The tapestry and complex texture of the planting, wild, free and yet obviously exactly where it is wanted, is mind-blowing. More please. Enjoy the photos ….

  1. I was there on Friday, and it was the best garden visit I have had for a long time. It totally blew me away!
