Great Dixter Garden

Great Dixter house and gardens are located in East Sussex, Great Britain. They were the home of legendary gardening writer, Christopher Lloyd. Every nook and cranny of the garden's six acres is crammed with flowering plants. This gives the garden abundant color and texture. Plants seem to dance together here. As Lloyd himself wrote, "If I think a yellow candelabrum of mullein will look good rising from a quilt of pink phlox, I'll put it there."

The gardens are open from the end of March to the end of October, daily from 11:00 AM to 5:00 PM.  The house is open from 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM. Cost of admission for adults is 11.55 pounds, and for children, 1.65 pounds.
