IRG-November 2012
« on: November 30, 2012, 10:43:11 AM »
Cracking edition again folks.

A lovely photo-essay from Cliff on "real" rock gardens in the mountains; an article from ZZ, in his own inimitable style, on a trip to the Apuan Alps and an article from Adrian Young on Ray Fairbairn's Allendale Saxifrage cultivars which I found of particular interest as a beginner in the Sax field.

Many thanks to the authors and particular thanks to Maggi and Ian for putting it all together and maintaining the very high standard.

Just beautiful Cliff! Alpine plants are meant to grow together. The IRG is a real gem!
