Other placements As well as formal scholarships, Great Dixter offers placements for trainee gardeners from around the world. Students are offered free accommodation and a small stipend to help with living expenses. Places are limited and book up long in advance, particularly during the summer months. Owing to a high number of recent enquiries, we will not be taking further applications at this time. We are currently updating our on-site accommodation which will enable us to offer further placements in the future. Please keep checking this page for updates.
