Troughs and Containers

Alpine Troughs and Containers

Troughs and containers of all sizes and shapes are commonly used by alpine gardeners because they are an excellent way to showcase small scale plants.  Factors such as soil drainage and fertility, light and heat exposure and moisture needs can be more easily monitored and controlled in a container than in the open garden.  Troughs and containers can also be moved to a sheltered location during winter to protect plants sensitive to excessive winter moisture such as alpines, bulbous plants and other perennials from dry winter regions.
