Rock Gardens and Their Plants

Saturday, May 27, 2017 - 10:30am
Event Type: 

The most complete expression of gardening may be the Rock Garden. This is epically true if you include a few miniature and the smaller dwarf conifers. Rock Gardens give us almost limitless plant choices and a long blooming season unequaled by any other type of garden. The foliage of most of these plants is evergreen so along with the conifers, you have a year round garden. I have read: Once you get into Rock Gardening, you will always be a Rock Gardener!”. I assure you it is an exciting and fun type of
gardening. Don’t miss this awesome presentation
