Alpine and Rockery Plants*
Click here for a full list of traditional Alpine and Rockery Plants

A Rock Wall
Rockery Plants are often referred to as Alpine plants as many of them originally came from mountainous areas such as the Alps.
As such they like well drained soil with a good concentration of coarse sand or gravel mixed through it.
Nowadays they are are often sold simply as low growing Perennials.
They are ideal in Rockeries, Walls, Tubs, Baskets or simply on the ground.
Some Shrub and Conifer varieties are small enough to be suitable in a Rockery.
Like most Plants, Alpines are sold by Pot size.
Our standard prices are*:
1 Litre
2 Litre
Some unusual varieties, or ones that are difficult to grow, may cost more.
