gardeningInvites rock gardeners and alpine plant lovers from abroad to join the Club. It has grown steadily and now has around 800 local and 60 foreign members. Many of them keep professional contacts with Rock Garden Societies, Clubs, Chapters in U.S.A., U.K., Germany, France, Belgium, Canada, Netherlands and other parts of the world, as well as with many botanical gardens. A lot of our members are experienced growers of alpine plants and skilled seed collectors. Our activities concentrate on:

Publishing of the bulletin "Skalnicky" (i.e. Alpine Plants) with four issues per year, each of about 40 pages with drawings and colour photographs.
Annual Seed Exchange. In 1999/2000 our Index Seminum (seed list) offered over 1.800 items from local and foreign donors.
Three shows of alpine plants including plant sale in the traditional show church garden in Prague.

  • The Early Spring in March/April - one week, specialized on plants like Saxifragas, bulbs
  • The Main Spring Show in May - lasting three weeks, exhibition of more than 1.000 plants
  • The Autumn Show in August/September, one or two weeks, for dwarf conifers, late alpines and other garden plants, Fuchsias, etc.
We also organize short trips and visits to our best rock gardeners in the country as well as longer holiday expeditions to the mountains of Europe and Asia.
