Gravel Garden Alpines

Alpines are easy plants to grow and look great in any garden.  Ideal for filling up the gaps next to a gravel path or in a rockery garden, these plants come in a wide variety of shapes, colours and sizes.

Alpine plants are drought-resistant, meaning during dry spring and summer seasons, once the plant is established, it will still thrive.

When planting alpine plants, make sure to add grit to the soil and plant in a dry area with good drainage.  Once planted, water them well and ensure they get plenty of sunlight. 

Alpine plants are great for creating a focal point within your garden or planted along the top of a wall.

Alpine plants dislike soil that is constantly damp.  If you have planted the alpines in a container, move them to a dryer area during the winter to avoid the winter rainfall.
