Just starting rock garden. Would you please give me some sites or tell me where I might get print catalogs for rock and alpine plants> Thanks Shirley

somewhere, PA

Here's a site with lots of gorgeous pictures:

And the North American Rock Garden Society site provides articles on how
to build a rock garden and pictures & links

Are you looking for sites that will help you purchase alpines / rock garden plants?
I'll come back tonight to check... gotta get to work right now.

Thanks guys I appreciate your kindness in hunting these fo rme. Yes I am looking also for purchasing plants Just now starting so unsure of what I want. Also interested in seeds Shirley

Central, UT(Zone 5b)

My favorite sources for seed besides the NARGS seedex are "Rocky Mountain Rare Plants" and "Alplains". You'll have to call or e-mail Alplains for a catalogue as their website isn't up yet.

I've also been looking at the following as well.... still haven't ordered from them but they have some very interesting offerings: "Jim and Jenny Archibalds site" "Gardens North" "Silverhill Seed" "Mesa Gardens" Cacti and assort. succulents

Another favorite plants source is"Beaver Creek Greenhouse"

If you are a member of NARGS the quarterlies also have advertisments with information to several other sources that I have yet to try.

If you search this link for "seed/plant sources you should come up with alot of information. Hope this works.
