A Danish Rock Garden
« on: June 03, 2020, 08:08:45 PM »
Kirsten Andersen and  Lars Hansen have  a  beautiful garden in Denmark.  The  two travel a  great deal to see  plants  in the  wild  and  grow  a lot  from seed.   You can visit  www.alpines.dk
to see pictures from their garden and plants they grow but  I'm sharing  here  some  photos  Kirsten has  recently  posted on Facebook.  The  first  few pictures are  from a  walk round  the  garden at the  end  of  May

Thanks to our Danish friends for showing us their outstanding garden. It is a already a longer
time ago, that we heard about about these friendly and very experienced gardeners and
it was always a big pleasure for us when we met them at various events.

One of the most beautiful gardens I've ever seen.

What a terrific garden. I thoroughly enjoyed looking at the plants especially Ptilotrichium spinosum which we used to grow, and the Gesneraceae.

Its so inspiring to have such high standards set!. I thoroughly enjoyed viewing the garden and in my wintery plus isolated condition I certainly look forth for more postings! Thank Maggi for presenting these exceptional gardeners.
