Don't know whether you can help but here goes. I have just taken on arockery, which hasn’t been forked for at least 18 months and is like turning over concrete as one would expect would you recommend mixing in some topsoil or compost?
Rockeries are usually a mix of soil/compost and lots of grit making it very free draining. Are you sure the previous owner hasn't cemented the rocks in? You never know!
no there definitely not cemented in
I can only get the fork say an inch in to the ground
maybe water it first to see if it softens up a bit
Hi Nick - I see you posted a few times because you were unsure which heading to use. I don't really think it matters too much - most people will click on Latest posts rather than each topic.
