The Scree Garden

In answer to many enquirers the quarterly illustrated magazine of the Alpine Garden Society can be had from the Honorary Secretary, Flowerwood, Capel, Surrey. It is given to members free and can be bought by others for 6s. 6d. The latest volume deals with the Scree Garden, which is the " blessed word" of the day. Scree is a better word than moraine and indicates a more natural and more English form of the rock garden. The Society in its three years of existence has done a great deal to improve what I may call the philosophy of gardening and yet more to introduce votaries to one another and to pool information. The next number of the quarterly (which is one of the rewards of membership) will deal principally with rock shrubs.
