Last year’s attempt at making a rockery was pretty poor – see below!
After seeing some pretty impressive rock gardens at Gardening Scotland last month it gave us a lot of inspiration and now, after a lot of back breaking stone-humping, we have a much more decent affair. We felt it best to leave our established plants in situ so it’s not necessarily planted the way I would have from scratch but I’m pretty pleased with it nonetheless.
Yesss, another party of the garden that will have all year round colour – I think alpines and succulents are some of my favourite plants.
Some of the new plants include:
- Chamaemelum Nobile Flore Pleno (Double Chamomile)
- Delosperma Wheels of Wonder (Orange Wonder)
- Pratia Pedunculata
- Sagina Aurea (smells divine!)
- Saxifraga Cuneifolia Variegata
- Sedum Acre Aureum
- Sedum Oreganum
- Sedum Pachyclados
- Sedum Spathulifolium Purpureum
- Sempervivum Hybrids
- Sempervivum Kramers Spinrad
- Sempervivum Silberkarneol
Already there, were various heathers, a couple of Saxifrages, Lady’s Mantle, Ferns, Crocosmia and Lavender – should be looking lovely once they’ve all had chance to bed in.
