The 'Great Wall' of Penmaenmawr
Not quite visible from space, but not far off! This sunny raised bed suits a wide range of alpines and has something in flower every month of the year

Judge's comment: super use of stone.

Crevice garden

South facing raised bed
Enjoying full sun until well after noon and getting the shade of the house later on, this bed allows for a diverse planting scheme with : Delosperma congesta in the front - further Dianthus "La Bourboule", Polygala calcarea lillet, Oxalis adenophylla and O. Ute, Iberis candoleana, Campanula aucheri and C. chamissonis major. The lawn and the border with Pieris, Azalea's and Rhododendrons provide the background.
