Dixter Faileth Never

Sunday 20th September 2020

We came onto Dixter that stormy day late in August. Royston loved how it heaved in the wind, not battered but a wilful force of massed plants in contention. There was some sign of workers having been furloughed but really a triumph as always. Dixter not defeated, the succession of plants maintained. Exuberant and spontaneous as it may look, this appearance requires incredibly complex planning to keep up through the season.

They’d even managed some new trends: Giant Zinnias and Love Lies Ableeding (or Amarinth).
