Caring For Nature

Great Dixter puts protecting the environment and sustainability at the centre of its work – this informs the way we manage our estate and gardens and the decisions we make. Great Dixter and its nursery have gardened peat free since 2007.

We grow the majority of our plants peat free, we collect our seed wherever possible, we have a no-burn policy, we make over 20 tonnes of compost a year, we water sparingly using borehole water, we use as much of our wood for building, we manage our woodlands in a sustainable regenerative way, we use sustainable heating techniques, we recycle and reuses widely through the estate, we buy locally, and we are forever looking to forward our methods in sustainability.
