I think you have left the best till last unless you have more photos PCW like them all hard to choose a favourite.

Thankyou

That's my lot,but there are more photos on the AGS website,including many I didn't photograph.This includes the best in show plant,a Corydalis,which I couldn't have been too bothered about!
Shows what I know.

Thank you.The idea is to highlight the existence of The Alpine Garden Society and also the Scottish Rock Garden Club.

Brilliant bit of PR Pcw. I'm delighted for your member, he is only 90 years old, I wonder what he'll be getting up to when he is 100? Goes to show the health benefits of being a gardener even on a small scale.

What delights my favourite one is the white one 3rd photo down.

I love them all. I couldn't choose a favourite. I love seeing things I've never heard of or seen before...it reawakens my excitement about plants! Maybe one day I'll have a small alpine collection with some of these treasures! Wonderful!

All are wonderful little treasures but that first photo shows really great imaginative planting, really enjoyed seeing them all.

Thank you for this blog. Lovely.

Those are lovely. The top one being my favourite. Although it's just confirmed to me that my miniature garden needs a wee shrub for height.
Thanks for going to the bother showing these series pcw - I've enjoyed each and every one.
All I need to do now is reach retirement, get an alpine house and enjoy :)
