Steve, given all that I have heard about the nursery of Cathy Portier, I would imagine that it would be well worth hiring a van and making a 'channel hop' to visit - there are more treasures than tufa to be found there I think! (mind you, for many, the tufa would be enough!)

We've  had  this query about a tufa garden and  I thought it  would  be  a good idea to reopen this  thread with it ... it  comes  from Michelle  Swann ....

"Help please. Any Ideas for Tufa Pile Revamp?
Any help you can offer us would be greatly appreciated.
What plants would you put between the gaps? We don't want anything that will dominate like we have at the moment. We are also towards the North of England.
What seeds would you propagate in the tufa? If you have planted seeds in tufa, what made you successful, or equally unsuccessful?

About the Tufa Pile
West Cheshire and Wirral Alpine Garden Society work in association with the University of Liverpool and Ness Botanic Gardens to promote the love of Alpines. There only have 3 volunteers that maintain the alpine area, but we will all admit that we are not the best tufa experts. We have asked if we can have a look at sorting out the Tufa pile. "

I hope that  forumists  will contribute  their  ideas ....  :)

I almost turned 16 and want to have my car, but I need to learn well at school and be good, that is, to listen to my parents. In the end, my father told me that if he continued like this, he would buy me the car I wanted, but not the most expensive one in the beginning. And I decided that my friends and I would look for a company that makescarports and call them to make us a new one, but we need money again for that. I worked for a few days without my parents knowing, I built one, and they said that I am good and that I deserve a car.
