What is it about certain places that make you want to visit again and again, a beautiful beach? It’s incredible history or just a memory of a great time you spent there?
Whatever it is 1066 Country will have you visiting time after time, just like the many guests who have rebooked to stay in our cottages here at White Sand.
With the Chelsea Flower Show in full bloom, I thought I would highlight the amazing gardens to visit in 1066 Country. June is a perfect month to stroll through the stunning gardens of 1066 Country, for instance why not come and smell the roses at the home of gardening, Great Dixter. This was the family home of Christopher Lloyd, who devoted his life to creating one of the most experimental, exciting and constantly changing gardens of our time. Incorporating many medieval buildings, the gardens surround the house, each complementing the other.
There is a wide variety of interest from yew topiary, carpets of meadow flowers, the colourful tapestry of mixed borders (including the famous Long Border), natural ponds and the exuberant Exotic Garden.
Created during the early 1990s the beautiful gardens at Merriments have quickly developed into a stunningly beautiful 4 acres of densely planted borders where the plants grown in the nursery can be seen in a garden context with a truly remarkable depth of imagination.
There are several gardens all planted with different themes. On entering the entrance garden it immediately strikes you as being excitingly different. Wander down and peep through the Yew circle to the new formal potager beyond. Turning right from the entrance takes you through the hot borders whereas summer progresses, the hotter the border! Other areas include the Golden Border, Blue Gravel Garden, the Ponds & Tropical Border and the wild area complete with a bird hide.
All these stunning gardens have their own nurseries so you can create your own version when you get home!
