At a Glance

Brilliant, upward-facing, flashing, bright red blooms with deep, carmine-red centres and a slightly darker outer edge are borne singly on tiny stems, giving the impression the flowers are levitating above the foliage.

This is a stunning, evergreen, mat-forming perennial with narrow, silvery-green, grass-like leaves that provide a lovely backdrop to the blooms. Ideal for flower beds, border edges, gravel and rock gardens, it also make an attractive groundcover plant when grown in large groups. It is a free-flowering variety with attractively serrated, frilled petals that looks stunning when grown over the top of low walls or rocks.

OFFER: All £2.99 Alpines in 9cm pot only £2.49 each when you buy 5 or more.

Buying Alpines from Jacksons Nurseries

At Jacksons Nurseries we lightly trim back our alpines after flowering to ensure that the plants remain neat and tidy whilst in the pot. The more tender the plant the less we cut back to help protect exposed stems from winter frost. Depending on the plant variety we will then prune back further in spring once the risk of the more severe frosts is over.

As a result, depending on the time of year you buy alpines, they may not look like images showing their ‘prime time’ in flower and looking at their best.

Pre-order: Pre-order times are given as a guide only and may vary dependent on the growing season.

From late autumn onwards and dependant on variety, there may be very little visible above the soil except for a few cut back dormant leaves or stems. It is perfectly normal for dormant plants to look like this from autumn onwards, they will however burst back into life in spring.

Alpines are a group of perennials that  generally grow in rocky conditions at high altitudes.

As for all plants, soil preparation is time well spent. Dig over the area to be planted ensuring that the ground is free draining. If not then you may wish to either consider planting in a different spot or raising the level of the planting area by adding additional topsoil, well rotted garden compost and/or well rotted manure. Add ‘Fish, Blood and Bone’ fertiliser or a high potash fertiliser to encourage good root growth and development.

It’s always a good idea to plant a few of the same plant together, we recommend planting in 3’s or 5’s to provide a bold effect but allowing them plenty of room to develop.

By using this simple guide and a little time, alpines can make an absolutely spectacular difference to your garden.
