NARGS-- is it worth it?
I'm new to alpine/rock gardening but not to gardening in general. Is joining NARGS worthwhile or can I get the information they give online or in books? I have plans and dreams to build a sunny rock wall (I've actually started it), shady rock steps with tiny plants, and a shady creek bank with boulders. I don't really know how to describe that but what I have in mind is to fix up our southwest facing creek bank which is about 15 feet high and shaded on both sides of the creek, with rocks and plant things like dwarf rhododendrons, ferns, woodland wildflowers. I have seen places like this in real life and am trying to mimic them.
