  As you know, Alpines need perfect drainage, as a rule. If  ground
conditions don't provide perfect drainage, the gardener can set conditions
up in troughs that will provide great drainage.
  The concrete recipes and procedures that so many people have shared, by
the way, aren't just limited to  troughs and pots. I see sculpture and
garden accent possibilities, too.
