Where these are found, there Is goneraly a rock for ­ mation. Mountain Inurel. arnica nnd high bush blueberry were rte- of the day a great number of plants wtlf thrive there In abundance. The second choice was the open rock garden. Mr. Wild warned hi* listeners that care should be glvtn in (he preparation of the soil. In order to produce strong plants. At least a foot or two of good soil In depth was necessary between the cocks to permit the roots to spfwod. 1 The terraced rockery was t^en 1 spoken of. and Mr. Wild stressed the point that a rockery built on ih, embankment facing the driveway ’ would be more attractive than a re ­ taining wall, and not as difficult to Mrs. Walter S.
