"Crevice Gardening"

Speaker:  Kevin Kelly

Crevice gardening is an exciting new trend in rock gardens. It is a great way to grow drought tolerant and alpine plants that require incredible drainage. Crevice gardens can grow plants that even rock gardens can’t. Based on his experience creating a crevice garden in his own front yard, Kevin will take us through the process, step-by-step. The same techniques can be used to create a crevice garden in a container. Kevin will also discuss the ideal “beginner” plants for this type of garden. 

Kevin Kelly is a Penn State Extension Dauphin County Master Gardener. His career as a Family Physician has taught him the importance of gardening for both mental and physical well-being. He started to garden over 35 years ago and realized that developing a “green thumb” is all about persistence and not being afraid to make mistakes along the way. He has won Two Blue Ribbons from the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society Gardening Contest and his garden has been included in multiple garden tours. His garden has also been certified as a Pollinator and Wildlife Habitat Garden by the Pennsylvania Master Gardener Program, the Manada Conservancy, and the National Wildlife Federation. He has turned his 1/3-acre suburban property into a garden to be enjoyed year-round.
