  1. You are doing a lot of pootling about!! What an astonishing amount of colour there still is at Great Dixter – it was July the time we were there so you would expect it then, but this really shows what great gardens are all about, doesn’t it?

    • I couldn’t visit Sussex without a whistlestop tour of Great Dixter. 🙂 Indeed, full of colour and imagination despite the late “hour”. I’d love to see it in high summer – and spring.

  2. We visited last year for the first time – it was the middle of September and I was worried about missing out on colour 🙂

  3. You’ll always get my attention namedropping the silver-haired icon. Never went there but his many appearances on The Victory Garden made me feel like I was visiting him and more importantly knew him. Don’t you wish we had youtube back then so heroes like this could still be teaching for eons to come

    • I never saw the Victory Garden, but imagine his appearances were worth their weight in gold. Fortunately he left a legacy of his writings, not to mention the garden itself, which still looks stunning, Fergus Garrett continues to do a great job.
