This lovely two-acre garden was started in 1973 by the current owners, when it was just a few large trees and snowdrops.

Interesting trees planted since include a liriodendron (tulip tree) planted in 1975.

A plantswoman’s garden, beautifully and cleverly planted, it features mixed herbaceous borders with roses, interesting perennials, some unusual Salvias and pockets of annuals grown from seed. It also includes a traditional potager, with box hedges, a wide variety of vegetables, a wildlife pond, a small orchard and a woodland area.

Great Dixter has been a great inspiration and influence.

Partially wheelchair accessible. Parking available in the paddock next door or on the road outside.
