The good summer weather of the past weeks with much needed rain and the following mists have allowed the plants to fully develop and flower. On the way up to the Alpine Garden keep your eyes open for Saxifraga caesia and Campanula cochlearifolia both of which can be found flourishing in rock crevices. Gentiana pannonica is coming into flower on the steep meadows behind Schachenhaus. In the Alpine Garden a diverse abundance of plants from the Himalaya, Alps and the Caucasus’ are in full flower. The plants growing in the Lesotho beds are coming into flower. It’s a great time to visit the Garden; we’ve reached the halfway mark, only six weeks until we close!
