A rock garden need not be a rich man's possession, stocked with rare Alpine plants. The smallest garden may possess one, and the humblest purse can fill it with delightful and inexpensive flowers: aubretias, rich as Persian carpets; Alpine phloxes; dianthus superbus (a feathery little pink); catmint for a sunny corner; wine-coloured primulas (Wanda) with wild yellow primroses; scilla sibirica and grape hyacinths, to make a patch of blue; bachelor's buttons red and white, and crimson thyme.
Today C. H. Middleton is to give some practical hints. Plants cannot grow in stones alone - they must have plenty of soil. Buy plants in pots, and they can be safely transplanted at any time of the year.
Then many an amateur gardener may want to build a drywall which is only another form of rockery. Just a loosely built wall without mortar - merely soil between the stones; the planting done as the building proceeds. C.H. Middleton is to show viewers how to build one, and he will suggest some of the plants to choose.
