I've been coming here a little while now, after years visiting Houseplants and Cacti & Succulents.
However, this year, having been barred from gardening outside for years on account of a mobility problem, I discovered the alpine sections of my local garden centres.
I have now acquired about 50 miniature plants, in height anything from a couple of inches to well over eight inches. I've discovered interesting things too - for instance, the label's description of size is often untrue -hence I have just had to move Campanula cochlearifolia, a supposedly small Alyssum montana, and Papaver miyabeanum 'Pacino', all very beautiful, to another tub to prevent them smothering all other residents.
I keep my plants in tubs and fishboxes, which were washed up on our local beach, and are roughly the size of troughs, but more colourful. I am trying to keep to the tinier plants for reasons of space - no, well, I lie, because I find the smallest plants absolutely enchanting too, all that life and colour in in such tiny creatures.
I wish there were more people here to exchange views on this type of gardening, like, for instance, the very lively houseplant forum, but who knows, it may yet happen.
