This week Country Life reports on the recent developments at Great Dixter, former home of our long-serving ‘In My Garden’ writer Christopher ‘Christo’ Lloyd (1921-2006).

With its Lutyens-designed grounds, yew topiary, carpets of meadow
flowers and colourful mixed borders, this historic house is a place of
pilgrimage for horticulturists worldwide.
We take a look in the Country Life Archive to track the changing face of this property through the 20th century.
