rock garden

Hey everyone!
My mother has 2 rock gardens but they are really ugly now. Old flowers, most of them withered so we need to renovate it. However, I have no idea what to start with. I am going to make a plan and a list of plants that will by sufficient. What plants are good for growing in rock gardens? What should I remember about? All recomendations/photos are welcome!

Re: rock garden

Hi @Miiche25,


Welcome to Workshop. We're pleased to have you join us and jump straight into the discussion. We're sure you'll get plenty of helpful advice about this project and many others to come from our knowledgeable and experienced members.


I'll kick off the suggestions and encourage you look at succulents. If you type succulent into the search box here on Workshop you should find lots of examples of members growing them successfully in a large range of conditions. 


You might also like to upload a photo or two of the garden area so members can see what you are working with and make more informed suggestions.


Thanks again,
