Main Rock Garden, August 4, 2014

Everything looking good on August 4th 2014. Sorry its been so long since I've posted - I was very busy this spring and early summer with about 180 new seed collections. About half were my own collections from 2013,and about half came from the Alpine gardening club of BC seed exchange, as well as friends. In this video you can see many of these young seedlings, although not in great detail. I expect those that have done well to overwinter without a problem and put on a show next spring. These collections included many new genera for this garden, but I would say that the largest addition has been the many new penstemon that I planted this year. 2014 also marks the first year that I have planted Pediocactus that I grew from seed collected in my own garden.
