Hi Everyone
Looking for some advice with regards to planting Lithodora Diffusa. I am presuming that the soil in my garden is alkaline as we live in an area where limestone is bountiful to say the least. I checked a post from last year saying that they hate lime. Has anyone successfully planted a Lithodora in this type of soil or adjusted the pH to allow for this? Or should I avoid the risk and reluctantly give the plants to someone else to enjoy??? Can't bear to see plants die......


Appreciate any advice

it likes Acid soil so what you have to do is get a bag of compost, cut it in half make some holes in one half to allow for drainage, then bury the bag in your border or wherever and plant into it covering the top of the bag with some garden soil it will grow away happily until it needs replacing. problem solved.......
