October Program Description

"Introduction to Rock Gardening"
October 16 from 1-4 pm
at Tower Hill Botanic Garden, Boylston, MA

This month we are very lucky to have a long time member of the Berkshire Chapter of the North American Rock Gardening Society introducing us to rock gardening.  Our speaker is a well known, experienced rock gardener who maintains three very large rock gardens containing hundreds of species of cold hardy plant including many cacti and succulents.

Rock Gardens are a bit different from regular “dirt” gardens in ways that make them ideal places to grow cold hardy Cacti and succulents. Peter will introduce us to the concept of rock gardening and tell us about some cold hardy cacti and succulents that thrive in that setting.

Please visit the web site of the Berkshire chapter of the North American Rock Gardening Society for more information, resources, and their extensive archive of informative news letters.
