Alpine Bed Update

The Tufa rock garden has just had 88 very desirable Kabschia saxifraga added to the collection of alpines already happily growing in the bed.
After much angst about a seriously delayed delivery from Mendle Nursery in the UK the plants arrived without damage thanks to a brilliant packing job of the bare root plants. A sorting and potting up day and a half was followed by a planting day on Sunday, March 8.  A wheelbarrow of gratitude to David and Wendy Sellars, Paul Krystof, Ross Williams and Nancy Armstrong for all their work. The labels in this bed will be replaced with less obtrusive versions in the near future. Next time you are in the garden take a look at the rock gardens as spring is the peak blooming season for alpine plants.
