Soil for rockery plants



Are you going for 'cryptic question of the week'?

12 May, 2011


It needs to be well drained, therefore most garden soils will do with lots of grit added. I don't know what your soil is like, Mdarcy, but if I am building a new rockery bed I would use two barrowloads of my garden soil and mix it with one barrow of grit and one barrow of soil conditioner. If I am growing in a pot or trough then it would be one portion of each.

I do the same as Bb. The grit I use is 5mmm stuff and the soil conditioner either composted bark or non peat potting compost.
