Inspired by the tiny plants and dramatic, rocky landscapes found on mountain tops, rock gardening uses a range of unusual, small plants in combination with beautiful stones to create miniaturized landscapes.

This approach to gardening is water-wise, ideal for containers and small gardens, and for gardeners interested in exploring a whole new group of plants.

Tychonievich will share images of rock gardens, the basic principles of creating rock gardens and an introduction to some of the most beautiful and easy to grow rock garden plants.
