That blog is brilliant, KS, thanks. I'm not used to reading blogs - how would I access the previous blog he references, about making troughs?

Four new troughs made up recently. I'm moving away from Crevice Gardens a bit now.

1) Tufa Rock.
2) Sandstone Bluff.
3) Limestone Heights.
4) Mudstone Mesa.

Smile Smile

They've just been filled with odds and ends for the moment. I'll plant them up properly in the Spring.

Great photographs. I love alpines. When I got my greenhouse this year I started dividing the ones I had in 3 troughs. I made quite a few new plants. I have an idea to make a living roof for a birdhouse him indoors says he will make me. My aubretia started flowering already so I put it in a planter with my Caster Oil Plant, nigra hellebore and another cream hellebore, ferns, cyclamen,anemone blanda and other Spring bulbs including crocus and miniature tulips
