Rock gardens are great features for breathing life into areas of the garden with shallow or poor soil. Alpines in particular flourish in these spots, as in the wild they grow in rocky, mountainous regions and this can be easily re-created in your garden.
Alpines are an often-underrated group of plants. They are hardy, low-maintenance and drought-tolerant. They often have colourful flowers and can be incorporated to brighten up any barren patch. They can also be grown in the cracks and crevices of stone, between paving slabs and in pockets on the top of walls.
