 National Garden Week project: Create an alpine display, the easy way

dp1A simple way to create an instant focal point in a small garden or patio that requires minimal effort or maintenance.  To create the ideal environment for your alpine display, you’ll need a container, multipurpose compost and a bag of Chelsea Garden Horticultural Potting Grit (RRP £4.49 from leading garden centres).  Time required: 15 minutes

  1. Choose a container of your choice that allows enough room for your plants
  2. Fill with compost to approximately half way
  3. Knock the plants from their pots gently free up the roots at the bottom of the plants so they can easily work their way through the compost below
  4. Carefully insert your plants individually, backfilling with potting grit as you go.
