rockeryThe backyard "rockery" cannot be a pile of stones, between which the plants are pressed.
The selection of stones should be equally careful, like plant selection. Cracked stones give the most interesting effects, rotten, covered with moss and lichen or limestone, sandstones, granity and gnejsy, which will wear out over time and take on an interesting look. Rather, large stones are used and the heaviest side is placed on the ground, deepening to approx. 1/3 their heights. Vertical positioning should be avoided, sharp shapes and arrange them regularly.
When planning plants, one should follow the example of natural mountain meadows, where plants grow freely and there are no big differences in soil and light requirements between them. Most rock plants like the sun, and dry and poor soil is a prerequisite for a nice silvery color to the leaves of many species, like for example.: the cornea, szarotki, rue. The geese requires similar conditions, gypsophila, smagliczka, dress code, floks szydlasty, thyme, sedum, rojnik, lavender, crocus, dotted carnation, żagwin. Low grasses suit them, and especially the various species of fescue, also shrubs: irga, Berbers, juniper, mountain pine. Lilies of the valley are planted in a semi-shaded place, bugles, squill, snowstorms, snowdrops, sasanki, bindings, Carpathian bells, kukliki, rocks. Hepatidae will grow well in a cool and shady place with northern exposure, bitterness, primroses, sweethearts, anemones, ciemierniki, barwinki, ungulates.

Fertilization of rock plants

Low turf-forming plants and such are planted along the paths, which are not damaged and lift easily when stepped on, e.g.: karmnik ościsty, thyme, some species of sedum and grass.

Fertilization of rock plants should be very moderate. Before setting up a rock bed, some compost or well-decomposed manure is added, and it can be scattered dry during growth, crushed manure. When using mineral fertilizers, nitrogen fertilization is kept to a minimum, giving preference to phosphorus and potassium. Fertilization ends in mid-summer and the plants then gradually dormant.
