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.
They are often an underrated group of plants. These plants are hardy, low-maintenance and drought-tolerant. Often alpines have colourful flowers and can be incorporated to brighten up any barren patch. Plus, they can also be grown in the cracks and crevices of stone, between paving slabs and in pockets on the top of walls.
