We are interested in promoting the growing, propagation and conservation of alpine, rock garden and woodland plants, small hardy herbaceous plants, hardy and half-hardy bulbs, hardy ferns and small shrubs.

Anyone can grow these diminutive beauties and with the trend towards smaller plots they are ideal for the modern garden - they can even be grown in a window box.


Seasonal Focus

Fritillaria raddeana , which started to flower in my garden in late February, earlier than the books say, as with much else this season. Related to imperialis, it doesn't have the off-putting foxy smell. From Central Asia - Iran, Turkmenistan, Afghanistan.
