15 year old sink garden

15 year old sink garden

Planted all that time ago...with cobweb sempers and saxifrages?. It has been neglected. Sat on by an ancient tottery granny. This year it loved the rain and sun. The moss has stayed green and lush too. It faces southwest and the sempers crowd ever closer and tinier.

In really like this. I am going to replant mine but cannot decide what look to go for.

looks good Dorjac, and knowing how old it is - and how resistant to being sat on! They really look tight-packed, but they don't look very unhappy about it.

As I said in the other pics....love this!
What size is your sink please? I have a rather large terracotta container and am wondering if this kind of thing would fill it nicely. Do you need to protect for winter?
Sorry so many questions :)

Looks great. I have an original Victorian butler (Belfast) sink, which I have had for around 20 years & have done absolutely nothing with. I have been thinking about planting it up with alpines for some years. Now I wish I had done it years ago!
