Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Alpine plants are beautiful, but have a reputation for not thriving outside of their natural rocky environment. In fact, these misunderstood plants are extremely versatile and can be grown as attractive features in any garden. Success with Alpine Gardening reviews all aspects of alpine cultivation and propagation, as well as how to plant and maintain raised beds, troughs, and containers. Other gardening ideas-gravel areas, ponds, paving and patios, walls, and borders-are fully explored, and the illustrated A-Z plant directory is packed with inspiration.

Synopsis:

This guide explains the versatility of alpine plants and the many ways in which readily available, hardy species can be grown as attractive features in any garden. All aspects of alpine cultivation and propagation are shown, as well as how to plant and maintain raised beds, troughs and containers. Other planting ideas such as, gravel areas, around ponds, paving and patios, walls and borders are fully explored and the comprehensive plant directory is packed with inspiration.
