i have two planters 3ft x 14ins and want to do a alpine garden,be it very small,any suggestions for very small alpines,i put four what i thought were small alpines and thet completely over ran the planters.Also ,does a kilmarnock willow in a large pot need pruning at all and when



If you go to the bottom of the page and click on A then click on alpines you will see lots of Alpine plants.
It is quite hard to find Alpines that dont spread. I grow these in my Alpine trough and they all stay compact. Sisyrinchium blue or yellow, Armeria maritima rubrifolia, Erodium x kolbianum Natasha, Saponaria ocymoides 'Snow Tip' White Rock Soapwort, Saxifraga 'White Pixie', and Potentillia Alpine Neumanniana
