CZECH ROCK GARDENERS SOCIETY (CZRGS)
This page belongs to our new society, dedicated to the love and care of some of the smallest members of the plant kingdom – rock garden plants. They are perennials that form buns, cushions, tufts, mats and carpets; they are bulbous plants, shrublets or the smallest conifers; sometimes they are true alpines.
We have selected for our emblem (logo) our best alpine plant PRIMULA MINIMA form SUDETICA: this beauty comes from the fell-fields (alpine stony ridges) of Mount Sněžka (the highest peak in the Krkonoše Mountains in the Northwest of the Czech Republic).
Our members focus on the construction and planting of natural stone outcrops called rock gardens or alpinums.
Czech growers, seed collectors and constructors of natural rock gardens or crevice gardens are among the best in the world of rock gardening and our society will spread the word about the best rock gardens and plants, together with our sister societies – the Alpine Garden Society, the North American Rock Garden Society and the Scottish Rock Garden Club.
At present the main aim of the CZRGS is to organize The 4th International Czech Rock Garden Conference in 5-9 May 2023.
