Alpine Hanging Basket in May

If your hanging basket never seems to have sufficient space for the plants you want to grow, then look no further than the rock plant family, a delightful group that includes dwarf conifers and petite perennials such as aubretia, veronica, pinks and saxifrage. Many flower profusely between spring and early summer, bearing the prettiest of flowers, often allied with handsome foliage. Rock plants have many attractions, but when it comes to gardening in miniature, they are hard to better. When choosing plants, it is essential to choose compatible varieties in terms of flowering times, growing conditions, and with similar growth rates to avoid one plant enveloping another.
