We’ve compiled a catalogue of plants that somehow survive, and indeed thrive, in the face of high alkalinity, liminess, harsh winds, extreme summers, winter frosts, high clay contact and an absence of any real topsoil. Living miracles! Some of these plants are indigenous to the area, others have been discovered by the trials and errors of local gardeners.
This catalogue is a work in progress. As a lot of our own plants are still young, we’ve used images on the internet of examples of each plant, just to get an idea of how they look in their mature form.
We’d love to hear your suggestions of any other species – please add a comment below!
