Franz, you have a wonderful rock garden and I enjoyed the tour of it.

Franz, what a delight to visit your rock garden! Of course, one first sees the bright colours and flowers but then there is the pleasure of all those healthy cushion plants, creeping over and through the rocks in the most happy and natural fashion....perfect. A master class in rock gardening!

What joy that rock garden must give you Franz? 8) It must have taken years to establish it? It just looks so well laid out with plants that just meld together. I must look again at my rockeris and maybe redo them? :-\

Franz,

Absolutely fabulous. How I would love to  have a rock garden like yours. It is really wonderful. Many, many thanks for your photographs, a great treat. You obviously have a tremendous collection of plants and all growing so healthily also.

What a fabulous garden you have Franz ! 

I guess it would get a first prize in any competition !

It must be quite enjoyable to have a piece of Sachertorte in these surroundings ;D

Thanks for giving us this little tour.

Wonderful Franz,you must have worked very hard to achieve that effect.My own of which I used to be very proud is more rock than plants.

Add my compliments and admiration to those of everyone else Franz. A collection in pots is great but it's very special when the plants are growing in a beautifully conceived and constructed rock garden, as they really should be. Yours is wonderful.

Nice insects Anthony - sorry, orchids :D

Franz, those photos are a credit to you.
How long did it take you to build a garden like that?

Most members do not like Gentiana. Why? The gardeners in my country love Gentiana. In spit of I will show some photos taken near my garden in the wild. Here are many different forms of clusii in a very small aerea and this is not often so!
And Primula farinosa.
