Workshop: Making an Alpine Trough

Location: MUN Botanical Garden

The Newfoundland climate is very well suited for alpine plants and many gardeners have constructed some fine rock garden examples with large boulders on sloped terrains. But not all alpines need the hard work and space needed to grow these remarkable plants. In this three hour class, Tim Walsh, MUNBG’s Horticulturist and Nursery Manager will help you construct your very own alpine trough, plus teach you the correct soil, site and plant selection to adorn your creation. These “mini-rock gardens” make perfect garden features and come out large on the smallest deck or the grandest patio. Cost $75.
