Rock Gardening

Rock gardens constitute a significant portion of the Garden's cultivated area. Nestled between the Rhododendron border and the Alpine House is the largest of the rock gardens; one area is styled as a traditional rock garden, resembling a mountainside, and the other is a more unique limestone scree, which showcases many native plants. The other rock garden, laying at the gateway to the compost and wildlife-friendly garden, is the crevice garden, which takes a stunning slanted view on showcasing alpine plants.
