[nafex] Scree Gardening?

Hello All,

Has anyone done any work with scree gardens?  I just learned the term myself, and a scree garden is one grown in gravel.

Why I ask, is that I have an old cattle loading corral to keep some fruit seedling in, and part of the corral has a good layer of gravel.  At first I
thought I would have to dig out all the gravel, then I started hearing about growing in gravel (a scree garden).

The claim they need less water (basicly never), and are easy to keep weed free.

Anyone done any scree gardening, or tried it with fruit?

Thanks,
Tom
