Other placements As well as formal scholarships, Great Dixter offers placements for trainee gardeners from around the world. Offered on a first come- first served basis, 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. Unfortunately because of the Coronavirus pandemic we are not currently able to offer informal student places. For more information about our student placements or to register your interest please contact Catherine Haydock: [email protected] or tel: 01797 254048.
