I can't get the fingernails to look clean. Is that going to embarrass anyone?

 

New Garden, New Soil

Hi Dudley

Steer clear of the obvious acid lovers like rhodos and azaleas and some of the heathers. My soil isn't chalk but it's very alkaline and I find skimmias and chaenomeles get an unhealthy yellow look to them so I avoid those.

Muck is good for soil whatever sort it is.

See what looks healthy in neighbouring gardens. google plants for chalky gardens and several nurseries have lists.

Celebrate the chalk, don't try and grow things that just about survive

I can't keep these and always put it down to the dry soil most late summers. They're lovely. I may try again
