Cannas at Hampton Court

We would just like to say a big THANK YOU to Keith and Christine Hayward of Hart Canna Nursery for publicising our fundraising campaign at their stand at Hampton Court Flower Show. Their wonderful display of Cannas based on the Dixter front porch was a great success and attracted attention both for the Genus Canna and The Secure Great Dixter Campaign.

Christopher Lloyd had long been an advocate of Cannas and loved to use their dramatic foliage and bright colours in the garden at Dixter. The display was a fitting tribute to a man who did so much to promote their use.Thank you once again and also to all our volunteers who gave their time to make the stand such a success.
