Has any one got ideas for rockery plants to grow on a very stony north facing bank, also we are in the Mendips so its lime !!!



A north facing bank isn't neccesarily a great problem, Shirley, provided that it gets some sun. Plants for your lime environment could include Dryas octopetala (Mountain Avens) a spreader or the 'silver' saxifrages. Why not visit Tadham Alpines, near Cheddar, and ask their advice.
I don't know this nursery, just taken their address from the web. Plants from just about any nursery will be better quality than from a garden centre and often cheaper!
