    Alpines. Piccies of

    No. I find that they're a little bit erratic. Diminish in one place (but never die out) and self seed elsewhere. Overall, their population has doubled in the garden in 10 years.

    Any potential problems creating raised rock garden in damp corner

    Here's one I did, keeping it 12" away from the wall. Absolutely no need for membrane. The height of the earth on top solves drainage problems.

    Dry Fern Trough

    Potted on some Cheilanthes sinuata sporelings on the weekend Possibly a bit late in the season, but I was bored :whistle: They will be kept indoors, so will hopefully keep growing.

    Well, I am glad I opened this topic. A couple of days ago, one of the stems fell off. I was upset when it happened - even though I was expecting it. Goodness knows how I would have felt, if I hadn't been warned. There are five new rosettes growing near where the other was previously.

    Silver Saxifrage info.

    Thanks. Did not look through the images. Sadly the Data allowance gets used up very quickly on images. Disappointingly that means the one I have labelled as it, is not, the flowers are pure white.
