Great Dixter, Northiam, England

Great Dixter is a truly great garden. They say if you can only see one English country garden, make it Great Dixter and I totally agree. It has a style all of its own. Daisy Lloyd, wife of Nathaniel Lloyd loved wild meadows and at Great Dixter one will see a lot of wild patches. At the entrance you will be greeted by this beautiful patch of wild meadow on both sides of the path leading to the front of the house. When I saw it, I knew, this was what I came for, wild flower meadows. The garden surrounds the house and is filled in with all sorts of annuals with narrow paths round them so visitors can walk all round. The property was later left to the youngest son, Christopher Lloyd who, if you visited before his death in 2006, can be found working in the garden.
