Making your own Alpine Garden is easy with the how-to guide from Suttons Seeds.
You can use any type of planter in your Alpine Garden but good drainage is vital. If the container does not have holes you can add these yourself or you could create a small resovior by adding small stones or broken pottery to the bottom of the planter before adding the compost.
Add a layer of mixed compost and grit, arrange your plants and fill around them with a compost mix.
Mulch and then add a good amount of grit and small stones on top which will aid with drainage, reduce weed growth and looks attractive.
Ensure the plants are firmly in position by gently pressing down with your fingertips as shown.
