The rocks are brought.

I live in upland and we have a lot of quarry around.

It is good to have access to fine rocks, Ewelina. I am sure I am not the only person to enjoy seeing the development of the Callianthemum from tight bud to open flower.

A warm welcome back to the Forum Ewelina. We've missed your hepaticas and news from Poland. The Callianthemum is a real stunner. Like John above, my success has been very limited but I certainly didn't apply lime so next time I have a chance, that will go into the mix. Thank you for your great pictures, and like Ian, I think the progression from tight bud to fully open flowers is very special.

Your plant is looking very good, Hans. Nice pix, too, and on the other threads, eg. your Hepatica and Erythroniums!

It has been some time since we heard from Kaye at Harlow Carr, but rest assured, she has been keeping pretty busy in the meantime... there are exciting developments at the RHS garden  Harlow Carr, where Kaye Griffiths is Senior Gardener and this week Paul Cumbletin, author of the Wisley Log, has invited Kaye to use the Log to tell us more about the new alpine house .......

That is wonderful. Just about the size house that I need.  ;D Everything planted there looks to be growing very well and is enjoying its new environment. So much work but what a great reward. Well done to all concerned.
