Open Gardens 2: Rockery


I'm quite fond of rockeries. There was a large one across the front of my childhood home and it always had some colour in it. I like the way the plants tumble through the stones like waterfalls. The owners of this large garden have recently undertaken a major re-landscaping, and so the rockery is still a 'work in progress'. But it was a cheerful sight with all the yellow flowers.

  1. I remember they were very popular back in the 1960s and 70s. Quite suited to our home County where most gardens are steep and big lumps of stone are common.

  7. I remember us having a rockery built without too many rocks and some arbitrary seashells!
