International crevice garden experts worked at Inverewe Gardens in September 2019  - you  can read  more  here: http://www.srgc.net/forum/index.php?topic=17335.0  and  in the  Dryas booklet  for  January  2020.

In September  2020 more  rock stars  will gather at Inverewe to continue the  project ....  more  details will be  released later, but to whet your  appetite on the  event, which will feature  Kenton Seth, master  crevice  constructor  from Colorado and  from Cheyenne Botanic Garden, Jacob Mares .... here  are  some  photos  posted  on social media  by  Panayoti Kelaidis, of  Denver  Botanic Gardens about  a recent  project  by  Kenoton at the  Cheyenne Bot. Gdn.  ... and  PK  is a  man who knows  stars  when he  sees them!!

Panyoti Kelaidis:
"Cheyenne Botanical Garden has put a fantastic crevice garden designed by Kenton Seth in front of their magnificent conservatory: I couldn't believe how beautifully a wide range of rock plants are doing--just visited February 29 and there were snowdrops and draba blooming! Had great fun visiting with Jacob Mares: their gardener who is taking fantastic care of the garden! woo hoo! "
