Great Dixter – 23.6.20

The gorgeous sunny weather was too much to resist – so we headed off to our local favourite garden at Great Dixter.

It was looking wonderful, the planting very far on for June, and the usual slightly anarchic mix of planting in the borders was breathtaking.
Highlights included the statuesque yew topiary surrounded by wild flower meadows. Verbascum living happily alongside cannas, all framed by glimpses through windows of espaliered pear trees. The quintessentially Dixter collection of pots around the porch. A mini field of violas in bloom. Woollen fleeces being used to protect Dhalias from slugs and snails. The amazing mulberry giving some welcome shade.


A wonderful garden. Different every time we come, and with appropriate distancing being observed it seemed more quiet than usual.
