Posting  for Chris B. :
"Today I finally tackled an overgrown garden trough. I’ve potted up some of its contents but mostly binned it. Acquired some lumps of slate whilst in the Lake District and top dressed with house slates bashed up. Quite pleased with the results, but it will look better when the plants settle in I’m sure....   "

Fishbox Troughs

Ian's article  on making trough from  polystyrene boxes - lightly updated with photos now directly  included :
http://files.srgc.net/general/FishBoxTroughs-JIY.pdf

 The newer method using a fish box inside a cement trough : http://www.srgc.org.uk/bulblog/log2008/170908/log.html

Yet another NARGS chapter  is having a styrofoam trough workshop!  Great   isn't it?

for my snowdrop-garden I got some day ago 4 old origin sandstone troughs and will they give a good place and fill with different rocks and alpine plants. Such old sandstone troughs are very rare now! In the background - my new greenhouse and a little "stonehenge garden"!

Aquilegia jonesii in a trough. Have this plant for7 years. It stopped flowering 4 years ago. This year started with 6 buds. Unfortunately one flower was damaged. I am covering the plant to get self fertilized seeds.
Last time it flowered I did not do that and all the seeds were hybrids.

We had a very warm spell for the season. 23 for several days which resulted in pushing everything to bloom. This is our chain of troughs. And then the closest one again with some drabas and primulas flowering

This plant was received as Draba Thomasii. But there should be 4 petals. Is it really draba?

Different shapes and colours in a very small space...this is what makes the planting of troughs so attractive.
