I hope you don't mind I have saved your previous photo and will make a waterproof marker for the pot I'm putting this in so I know where it is. Do you feed them anything special?

I dont feed my alpines in pots although I'm sure others may do.If I did,it would only be a bit of bonemeal in early spring.Or a high potash feed after flowering for bulbs.

Thank you. I tend to feed everything with bonemeal in spring. There was quite a debate on here about whether bonemeal was best when planting. My reason for using it was that i was told it helped plants to root when newly planted. It is also a slow uptake substance. Another member was certain that a different substance was better but I cr what it was now. I did try it on some plants and the cotoneaster seemed to love it but the chaenomeles did not so I'm back to bonemeal this year. I have always given my bulbs, we have a lot of naturalised daffodils, bonemeal after flowering but again someone suggested half strength tomato food. I dk that it made a lot of difference to the daffodils the following year but it helped the foliage to die down a lot quicker. I'll see how it goes. Thanks for taking the time to explain.
