Alpines in the Open Garden
The author's avowed intention in writing this book is to let the world know that "alpines are easy." In addition to the best and most popular easy-to-grow alpines, the author describes many lesser known varieties of outstanding beauty that can be grown in the open garden with a minimum of attention. Plant descriptions are followed by comprehensive information on culture and propagation, so that the book will appeal not only to newcomers to alpine gardening but also to those established enthusiasts looking for solid tips and advice.
