Do alpines require a lot of maintenance?
Many alpines are relatively low maintenance if planted in the right conditions. Many have adaptations to cope with extreme conditions, and will not need a lot of watering.
Alpines from the most extreme environments and habitats can be very difficult to grow in most ordinary garden conditions. We grow a range of alpines that generally do not require the really specialist situations. Notes are given under individual plants in the shop where they may need extra protection.
