Wildlife Friendly

From one year’s surveying, Great Dixter has been has been found to contain over 2,300 different species of wildlife in its varied matrix of plantings. The usage of both woody and herbaceous plants, and our practices of avoiding chemical interventions in the garden has been key to this.This mosaic provides not only pollen and nectar resources, but breeding sites, refuges and overwintering habitats for a wide variety of species. It is this interplay of habitats and plants that has made the garden such a rich and biodiverse site.
