The wall....

A while ago now, I put a post up about which plants were best for my wall, which has 4" of soil in down the middle. They had to be wildflowers, short, but pretty. There are now cats that seem to like walking up and down it. If they are not common at major seed companies, please link where to find them. I look forward to the help, thanks in advance!!! :smiley:

    Would need more info about the wall and the soil amount.
    There are lots of companies which sell wildflowers, but you'd need to make sure they were appropriate for the conditions you have - both the soil and your climate. 
    Here's one -

    Its thin, can get quite dry aswell. the soil s 4" deep but we are getting new soil, so the soil quality wull be better again.

    Wildflowers generally need poorer soil to thrive. Plenty of small alpine plants would do quite well there, which could be interspersed with things like poppies and others which like the same conditions  :)

    You could try Navelwort. You see it growing in wall cervices in Cornwall and Pembrokeshire. I sowed some last spring and now have some little plants to pop into cracks. They're soooo cute with their little round leaves!
