Rock Gardening: Reimagining a Classic Style
A thoughtful new look at inspirational rock gardens. There are sound, practical ideas and instructions to enable you to build your own rock garden.
Rod Leeds, Alpine Garden Society and Royal Horticultural Society
Rock gardening—the art of growing alpines and other miniature plants in the company of rocks in order to recreate the look of a rugged mountaintop—has been surging in popularity. Time and space constraints, chronic drought in the American West, and a trend toward architectural plants are just a few of the reasons for the increased interest. Rock Gardening brings this traditional style to a new generation of gardeners. It includes a survey of gorgeous rock gardens from around the world, the techniques and methods specific to creating and maintaining a rock garden, and profiles of the top 50 rock garden plants.
