Great Dixter Nursery

old barn at Great Dixter NurseryThere’s something immensely satisfying about visiting an iconic garden like Great Dixter and then being able to go to the nursery to buy some of the plants that have caught your eye. With its history of plantsmanship and innovation under the inspirational guidance of the late Christopher Lloyd and now Fergus Garrett, there are always exciting plants in the garden and many of them can be bought from the nursery. Every time I make a visit I spot something irresistible. This time it was Francoa ramosa – a white flowered Francoa that should be hardy in my very sheltered seaside garden. The selection on offer at the nursery includes a comprehensive collection of clematis – and now is the perfect time to plant clematis.

    I love Great Dixter too, especially in late summer when the exotics are at their best. You expect to see Christopher Lloyd round every corner ! I agree that it is fantastic to be able to buy those plants which looked so good in the garden, it really is inspirational.
