Rockery in late June
The rockery is bound by two young Abies koreana for height and structure. The foreground and upper area is generally in full sun through the summer and is planted to suit, with varieties of penstemons, osteospermum, genista, thymus, dianthus, phlox, and is split down the centre with raoulia australis. The rest of the rockery gets less sun than the other areas and also remains damper and is planted to suit, with examples of primula, arisaema, bletilla, dwarf rhododendron, fritillaria, and spring and autumn flowering gentians.

Mediterranean Rockery
In this rockery I grow mainly bulbous plants next to stipas and limonium species - Iris of the section Oncocyclus are dominant in this part.

Rockery
This rockery is small. The framework is provided by a mature dwarf spruce, Rhododendron 'Curlew', various other dwarf Rhododendrons, Salix boydii, Saxifraga paniculata, Phlox, Hutchinsia alpina, and Potentilla eriocarpa (running rampant). It is backed by a colony of blue Meconopsis and shaded by Nothofagus pumilio. It has a large turn-over of species. Plants I grow from seed are often planted here and they have to take their chance in the west Norwegian climate.
