Great Dixter – the unbearable build-up

Great Dixter is one of my favourite places in the world.  Has been for nearly 30 years.  I’ve been deliriously happy there and horribly stressed.  In that house and garden I’ve experienced high affirmation and crippling self doubt.  My months there were amongst the richest in my life.  Check out the video of Ash and me as we travel the last few kms before arriving last year.  Lets just say I was a little bit excited…


And then, we approach the front gate.  I can’t begin to describe the layers of joy that unfold as I walk around on a perfect late summer evening.  Best to just watch it.  If you haven’t already.


To experience this special place with me, and to rub shoulders with Fergus Garrett over lunch in the 400 year old Yeoman’s hall, join me on my New Naturalism Travelling Masterclass. But BE QUICK, registrations close this Friday 17th May, 2019!
