The Alpine Garden

These pages will provide data on rock and alpine gardening; how they are constructed and what type of alpines are easy to grow. I will be adding more data in the near future but if you can’t wait, please visit The Alpine Garden. The Alpine Garden provides several articles which will support any level of Alpine gardening. The Author has done an excellent job in organizing his site to educate you in all aspects of Alpine gardening.

Please see the Alpine Society homepage to join a local group. I recommend the small Alpine groups where they have a great seed exchanges and respectable bulletins. The top National/ World Organizations dues are to way to high and you even have to pay for seeds exchanges.

In closing, the number one club for me is: The Alpine Garden Club of British Columbia with a close second, Androsace Group. I recommend joining these groups.

Here are other Societies to obtain more knowledge or join one from these links:

    Looking for Penstemon hardy to zone 5; I have seeds of Penstemon arabesque red sown but find that they are hardy to zone 7. I live just outside St. John’s Newfoundland in Canada which is zone 5a.
