The design team enjoyed a day out at Great Dixter, Marchants Hardy Plants and Sussex Prairie Garden.

The history of Great Dixter, home of gardener and gardening writer Christopher Lloyd, immediately inspired those who hadn't visited before. Most of the landscape design was by Edwin Lutyens, and amongst the strong architectural infrastructure the planting seamlessly flows.
