Alpine Border


By Scotkat


I have an area behind oen of my greenhouse ,have decided to change it and make it into an Alpine border .

So a bit of spare time before I go to work on alarge garden after lunch ,decide to make a start.

In this I have light pink Kaffir lily if anyone would like to swap for some white if they have.

Or can just have the kaffir lily.

Make sure that you keep us posted with the alpine border, Scotkat. And don't forget some nice pictures, please.

Bulbaholic yes I will keep you posted ,I want to take it back to a blank canvas and start again.

I made a small alpine border for one of my ladies last year and when I was there today ,all the dwarf daffoidils were in full bloom.

I so enjoy planting up alpines.

I will take before and aftern photos.

Certainly cold enough.
