Super post  from Alpine  Garden Society  on Twitter -  " Seven year old Ian Galloway shows you how to create your own alpine trough from scratch -   Go Ian!
Ian is John Galloway's (AGS Trustee & Treasurer) grandson & learnt to  garden because of his Grandpa
Isn't it wonderful to see children  gardening?"

YES!!!



Young Ian already does better  than many  on TV!!

Great video on filling and landscaping a trough from Paul Spriggs in Canada:
