I bought mixed lewisia and I am not sure where to plant, in the pot or in the soil as you know soil of my garden is very very sticky clay.I spend most of my time saving plants:) thanks in advance:))



Lewisia's do not like sticky clay... They also don't like their crown getting wet and holding the water.

Can you make a little gritty alpine bed for them?

That could work, get a bag of multi-purpose compost and a bag of grit mix together half and half, you probably wont need all of either and then either use in pots or create a bed in your garden.
