Crevice  Garden built in British Columbia for  Dr  Hans Roemer by  Paul Spriggs

From Paul Spriggs (who has just  written a book with Kenton J. Seth about  Crevice  Gardening -which is eagerly awaited).-


"Today we built a small crevice garden for my rock gardening mentor Dr. Hans Roemer. Ive learned so much from him over the past 22 years, its the least I could do..."

"Its hard to tell but the water  container filled to the top with water in this picture. it is quite deep.and intended to hold fish.  .....  ...i know what youre thinking... 'how is that square form 'natural'?... well I personally would have used a kidney shaped tub, but this was the shape that Hans wanted. I personally have a 'no straight lines' policy in my designs as they rarely occur in nature. the edges will be softened and hidden by planting soon. "

It's great to see Paul do this for Dr Roemer - a man held by many of us in high regard.

Kenton Seth (USA) and Paul Spriggs(Canada) have written their long-anticipated book on crevice gardening published by the excellent Filbert Press, entitled 'The Crevice Garden - how to  make the  perfect home  for  plants from rocky places'  and the book is open for pre-ordering - see the  link below - for  only £23.25.

https://uk.bookshop.org/books/the-crevice-garden-how-to-make-the-perfect-home-for-plants-from-rocky-places/9781739903909



Publisher
Filbert Press
Publishing Date
21 April 2022
Hardcover ‏ : ‎ 224 pages
    ISBN-10 ‏ : ‎ 1739903900
    ISBN-13 ‏ : ‎ 978-1739903909

From the little I have seen of the book so far, I am very excited to get it into my hot little hands!

Many of you will already know of the  talents and skills  of these two remarkable men - the number of terrific garden builds they have been a part of, both individually and together, is growing all the time, and this book gives some of the  clearest information on the subject available anywhere. Kenton and Paul have learned from the best, and are well-equipped to pass on their experience to others in this book.
