Rock gardens and plants

dazlr(z5ontario)September 2, 2013

I love heucheras but have also found another passion in the garden . Rock gardens and the plants we put in them. Right now I am looking at finding places in Southern Ontario that has interesting rocks (sandstone, limestone etc) that I can use in the garden and grow plants in their crevices. Does anyone know of such places ?
I found a wonderful place to get alpines and plan a trip in early spring to buying lots of them . The place is

Anyone know of any others up here in Ontario ?

Thanks for any help here or any ideas on rock gardens

Check out the Ontario Rock Garden Society webpage. They meet in Toronto, but even if you can't attend meetings, there is lots of info on the web page, including a seed exchange, germination guide, etc.
