If you are a NARGS member, the Seed swap ordering is now open. It was hard to whittle a list of nearly 3000 seed varieties down to a few that I really wanted ! So many interesting plants to try !

Just obtained a new Rock Gardening book.
It is an easy read with lots of photos.
Written by Joseph Tychonievich.
It illustrates the range of how rock gardening might be done.
There is a section on Techniques and propagation.
Then details on about 20 rock garden plant families.

Would be excellent for a beginner rock gardener.
I am not a beginner, but it has inspired me !

Sounds good !
He has written several books.
I have the Plant Breeding one too.
And he does a very capable job of editing the Quarterly for NARGS.
