I’ve never had a rock garden, I confess. But a new book about a modern and extreme form of the art caught my attention recently.

It’s called “The Crevice Garden: How to Make the Perfect Home for Plants from Rocky Places,” and its authors are here today to talk about why you might want to make room for one, and the plants it can support.

Colorado-based Kenton Seth and Paul Spriggs from British Columbia are garden designers with a particular specialty in rock gardens, and also co-authors of the new book “The Crevice Garden.”

When they appeared this spring on the popular Garden Masterclass webinar series, British host Noel Kingsbury said this in the way of introducing them: “Rock gardening will no longer elicit a yawn, because this is the future.” I’m glad they’re here today to give us a peek into this brave new world.
