Visiting Great Dixter Nurseries

The Nursery was started by Christopher Lloyd in 1954, specialising in plants he deemed garden-worthy. We remain a small, personal and professional nursery. For more information about our methods of raising plants click here.

As well as plants, we sell hand-picked Great Dixter seed, and a carefully selected range of Sneeboer & Zn garden tools and pots and sundries.

Nursery open all year round

The Nursery is open to everyone, not only visitors to Great Dixter House and Gardens. There is no entrance charge and it is open throughout the year – see opening times above.

Convenient parking and next to the Great Dixter Shop

Parking is located at the north west perimeter of the Nursery. From here the Nursery may be accessed directly. The nearby Great Dixter Shop is ideally located for garden-related products, gifts, locally made products and refreshments.
