Great Dixter Gardens
History, tourist information, and nearby accommodation
On the south side and behind the house, beyond the High Garden, are the Orchard Garden and Long Border. In the Orchard Garden are many daffodil hybrids. The mixed border contains shrubs, climbers, perennials, annuals, and biennials mixed together. This area of the garden requires much maintenance.
There are a number of brick arches that date from the design in 1910. Lutyens also designed seats for the gardens at the top of the Long Border and in the Topiary Garden at the back of the house. Yew topiary is a feature of the garden as well as high hedges of olive green holm oak.
An Exotic Garden features purple and white blooms alongside banana trees. An orchard is at the rear of the property, and a nursery and garden shop are nearby.
Geometric paths, rare perennials, topiary, a mix of formal and informal outdoor rooms - Great Dixter offers many enjoyable garden highlights.
