These tough plants are known to survive extreme conditions in the wild, from rocky mountains to cold and dry cliffs, but making sure you choose the right plant for the right situation is key. Most alpines prefer a well-drained soil and don’t like wet winters. There are some that prefer shady sites but most like as much sun as you can give them. There are so many species that will provide flowers from February to August so they really are a useful range of plants.
We source 90% of our alpines from English growers so you can be assured that they are good quality plants. We stock them from April until the stock runs out but the spring and early summer is the best time to plant them so that they can grow into the soil and get settled before they have to cope with a winter.
If you’d like any help with choosing the right varieties our staff are always happy to help.
