Alpines generally don’t mind the cold, after all the definition of an alpine is a plant that grows at high altitude, above the tree line. Alpine plants are available from February with a good range including the ever popular Aubertia, Saxifraga, Phlox subulata and Lithodora diffusa. These are all good options for a sunny spot; alpines need good drainage so adding horticultural grit to the planying hole is beneficial.
If you haven’t got the right spot in your garden create a miniature alpine garden in a shallow container, we have a great range of suitable troughs and pots in stock. Fill your container with compost and add a few handfuls of horticultural grit and then add your plants. We have a good range of plants available and we are always happy to give advice to help you make your choice.
