Perennials in a rock garden

Perennials in a rock garden

Already when planning the garden, a place should be allocated for the future rockery. It must be a place free from trees and shrubs and it should be well sunny.

On the rubble and small stones, a mound of leaf soil rich in calcium is made. Stones are placed on top, so that they fit the whole and the surroundings. Rock plants grow in the gaps between the stones and in the depressions. These places are protected against wind and close to natural conditions. You can also put a layer of limestone rubble next to it 10 cm. Carpathian bells and Caucasian geese will thrive on it.

Silvery yarrow grows well next to each other, early thyme and disseminated speedwell. Dwarf wormwood with silvery leaves among clumps of alpine fescue gives an excellent decorative effect.

In June and July, the mydlaria blooms pink. It grows in wide and loose clumps. Mint feels good in its vicinity, eagerly visited by bees. Flowering carpets are also made up of species from the saxifrage and coarse family. The saxifrage comes from the clove family, which can surround the whole stone with its roots. The most famous rock plants are: floks szydlasty, rogownica Bieberstcina, evergreen garment, garden guinea pig, rock dragonfly and scattered gypsophila. White appears from May to June, shiny, star-shaped flowers of the octopus oak, which covers the whole rock with evergreen turf.

Buckets can also be used, bathtubs and other utensils, to which the plants are planted. In such containers, which can be moved to different places, we plant particularly valuable specimens, characterized by high ornamental value.

The above-mentioned examples can be modified in various ways. The rock garden is not dependent on the natural position. Convenient conditions for him can be created anywhere in the garden. A large selection of commercial plant species, good knowledge of their requirements and soil quality facilitates the correct production of plants. Daily contact with plants, especially with wild perennials, teaches us, how the characteristic features of these plants can be improved by proper care.
