Rock garden in western Norway
The foundation of the rockery was laid in 1986 and it has evolved continuously. Several of the plants were there at the beginning, like the dwarf Picea, Rhododendron Curlew and Primula auricula. The latest addition is the row of Meconopsis Lingholm along the back under the Nothofagus pumilio tree.

My Alpine Garden Now Nearly 2 Years Old
Created from a weedy, N-E facing slope in Spring 2008. Deeply dug and with 50% limestone chips added. Nearly all of the plants were from 11cm pot size and have done so well, that thining out is urgently needed !
