Great Dixter Garden, near Rye

The amazing Great Dixter Gardens, near Rye is one of the finest Gardens in the British Isles.Great Dixter is the family home of the late Christopher Lloyd - Amazing plantings run riot!

Great Dixter is one of the most amazing Gardens in the British Isles.
The house has an interesting history and dates from the 15th century. The house was bought by Nathaniel Lloyd in 1909 and he already had a similar one in Kent which he moved and rebuilt to combine with the existing house. He commissioned Lutyens for the task and to design the garden. Incorporating many medieval buildings, the gardens at Great Dixter surround the house, each complementing the other. The original plantings were by Mr and Mrs Nathaniel Lloyd and later Christopher Lloyd

There is a wide variety of interest from yew topiary, carpets of meadow flowers, dazzling colourful mixed borders (including the famous Long Border), natural ponds, a formal pool, to the wonderful Exotic Garden. The late Christopher Lloyd and head gardener Fergus Garrett were constantly experimenting at this great garden and it is one no garden enthusiast should miss.
