  • Great Dixter – again

    13th July 2016Places to VisitStephanie Donaldson

    Well when you have one of the world’s great gardens nearby, it’s pretty irresistible. The team at Great Dixter were holding a press day, and although I know the garden very well, there are always things to learn, techniques to observe , new plants to see  and the ever-changing plantings to admire.  I will do later posts about some of the things I learnt and plants that caught my eye.
