Crevice gardens

Crevice gardens. They’re a thing. If designed well, the correct placement of rocks and sand means that plants otherwise needing a shadehouse or greenhouse can thrive outdoors. It’s an alpine environment in miniature.

Christchurch Botanic Gardens now have New Zealand’s only public crevice garden. Staff member Grant Matheson has been involved in selecting all the plants for this new feature.
