cheers guys. oh well was trying to aviod a garden center as they bankrupt me lol. guess i could have a go and stick to alpine plants.  what im trying to achieve is a bonsai rockery on a tray that's only 1cm deep.

now as i need to keep everything together would hessian be something i could use to keep everything in place for the first couple of years but allow new plant growth? my other option is bonsai potting mesh but then that would be pretty much left there all the time. at least with hessian that would rot away once the whole thing has jelled.

how do i make the compost/soil more chalky and less fertile for them to have a good chance?

Anyone know where i can get these as plants now? i done a search and only seem to find seeds. was hoping to make a mini rockface  and plant these with some very low grass or moss on a bonsai tray

i recently went to Cornwall and saw on the cliffs some plants growing around some rocks and i liked its simpleness. now i live in Southend so i'm not sure if its possible to grow what i saw but would like some help trying to identify what i saw and whether they would grow good here.
