Unfortunately, not every garden provides ideal conditions for growing your preferred plant varieties - and almost certainly, every garden will probably include some locations, with difficult conditions for growing anything, so it seems. In this category we therefore especially selected those plant varieties for you, whose natural habitats leave them exposed to extreme and difficult climatic conditions.
This group of plants that thrives even in extreme circumstances includes alpine plants, salt plants and shade-loving plants, such as the plant varieties, which grow well on the extremely humid grounds of tropical rainforests with hardly any light reaching through to them.
Normal garden soil is very rarely acidic, and if it is, it is a rather bad choice for vegetable patches - but all rhododendrons, azaleas, hydrangeas, magnolia and cyclamen as well as of course all types of heath grow particularly well under such soil conditions.
Alpine plants are an outstanding group of plant species, united by their extraordinary capacity to survive in harsh conditions, such as unprotected exposure to extreme weather and growing in meager habitats e.g. nutrient poor or thinly spread soils in the mountains or narrow gaps and crevices in between the rocks.
Most plants prefer sunny locations, so very often we will find ourselves at a loss which plants to choose for shady or half-shade spots in the garden, for example beneath trees, next to imposing garden walls or hedges.
