The aim of this book is to deal with the practicalities of rock gardening, not merely to supply a list of plants. After discussing how and where the plants grow in the wild, the author turns to consider the various man-made habitats that can be created. The main emphasis is on the rock garden and the alpine house, but alternative sites, such as raised beds and troughs, are also described in detail. Information is given on the construction, planting and care of the various areas of the garden. Detailed instruction is also given on acquiring plants either by purchase or propagation - the latter being dealt with at length.
