Plants thriving in difficult growing locations

Difficult growing locations

Difficult growing locations
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.

Acidic soils
Acidic soils

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
Alpine plants

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.

Halophytes & salt plants
Halophytes & salt plants

Halophytes and halophiles are organisms which thrive in habitats with higher salt concentrations either in the soil, the water or in the air.

Aquatic and marsh plants
Aquatic and marsh plants

Aquatic plants are plants which are adapted to growing entirely or partly in water, as would be the case in riverbeds, swamps and marshlands.

Shade-loving plants
Shade-loving plants

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.
