ANTHRÔPEK

(An-THRAH-pick)

ANTHRÔPEK is an original and unique word.  The inspiration for naming ANTHRÔPEK came from the containers we make:

“Anthropic rock is rock that is made, modified and moved by humans. Concrete is the most widely-known example of this. The new category has been proposed to recognise that man-made rocks are likely to last for long periods of Earth’s future geological time and will be important in humanity’s long-term future.” (Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)

HYPERTUFA

(hy-per-TOO-fa)

A classic mixture of three basic ingredients: peat, perlite, cement. ANTHRÔPEK has modified a variation on this recipe to ensure that our signature containers have strength, durability, and longevity.

TROUGHS

(trAWfs)

In addition to our signature containers, we also make a specific type of planting container known as troughs. Their dimensions are traditionally shallow and rectangular in shape.  Troughs are designed to grow alpine and rockery plants that require special soil, drainage, and siting.  Gardeners who are intrigued by these miniature plants covet these hard to find containers to grow their gems.

Interested in alpines and rockery plants?  So are we! Check out these organizations for more information than we could ever post here:
