A fine start for the Alpine team at the garden.
The team have won gold medals for displays of alpines at Stirling, Hexham and Edinburgh this year. These shows are organised by the Scottish Rock Garden Club providing a forum for members to display the very best that the season and their growing skills offer.
Open to the public, the next show will be Perth on 17th April, followed by Glasgow; 1st May and Aberdeen on the 15th May. Well worth a visit to admire the colour and diversity of these mountainside plants.
Better still; spend time in the alpine house at Edinburgh. There you will see the diversity of flower colour within the species of Primula allionii. This pan was part of the display at last weekends Edinburgh show along with Iris willmottiana for which a Certificate of merit was also awarded.
