Earlier this week I bought 2 pink saxifrage. I now quite fancy a small rockery garden in a container of some kind. Would also like suggestions on other plants to go in there. Many thanks.
A lot of people do this kind of thing in an old, shallow ceramic or stone sink/trough. Sedums and alpines I would imagine are the things to plant. The effect can be very attractive.
I have a nice terracotta pan which I have some sedums etc in. I had pasqueflowers in it last spring and cyclamen before that. The pasqueflowers have been planted into the raised beds so I'm about to put some other things in.
This is it with the cyclamen:
and with the pasqueflowers last year:
Thank you artjak and fairy.
Love old butler type sinks, but I think they are quite pricey.
Love your bowl fairy must look out for one of those.
Thanks for the suggestions on plants too
Many thanks Verdun,
If you're anywhere near Rainham in Kent, the Apline Garden Society is holding its spring show at Rainham Girls' School on Saturday (22nd). Lots of inspiring exhibits and some great nurseries.
Too far for me, thats a shame.
Don't know Verdun, haven't seen him for awhile. Hope he's ok.
