|:||the present Great Dixter is actually three houses, one built here in the mid-15th century with slightly later additions, the second a yeoman’s house from Benenden, across the border in Kent, built in the early 16th century and moved here in 1910, and the third combines the two with additional accommodation, completed in 1912. It was at this time that the house, hitherto called merely Dixter, was renamed Great Dixter.Christopher Lloyd returned to Great Dixter to make his living from the garden and devote his life to it. Visitors were encouraged and a nursery was opened to sell them the plants they admired in the borders. A talent for writing, also evident from an early age, came to the fore with the publication of his first book in 1957.|
