Rex Murfitt's book Creating and Planting Alpine Gardens, won a Quill and Trowel award for book writing from the Garden Writers Association. It is a 276-page paperback that entertainingly tells exactly how to build rock gardens and work with alpine plants. What a treasure trove for serious gardeners who downsize! It has a chapter on alpine houses and a directory filled with great plants to make your garden wonderful. It is the sequel to our award-winning rock garden classic, Creating and Planting Garden Troughs.
Now it is available from Amazon.com in the Kindle version, priced at $8.99. To add to that black-and-white product, Rex and I have posted some colorful illustrations and page views here to enhance the Kindle experience.
