Our first garden this morning will be Nymans. Much of it destroyed in the Hurricane of 1989, Nymans has rebounded as one of the loveliest gardens of the Sussex Weald. The dramatic house ruins, historic plant collections, and exotic species collected from overseas, make this a garden not to be missed.
Built in the middle of the 15th Century and then restored and added to by Sir Edwin Lutyens, Great Dixter is both the family home and passion of garden writer and designer, Christopher Lloyd. Mr. Lloyd has devoted his life to creating one of the most experimental, exciting and constantly changing gardens of our time. A frequent writer for Horticulture Magazine, Mr. Lloyd advocates the use of bright, contrasting color in the garden and his home exemplifies his theories. Great Dixter will both captivate and astonish at every turn.
