I would love some suggestions. I have been makeing hypertufa planters but I am new to alpine plants.

I live in Victoria B.C. which is zone8. Does anyone have suggestions for a nice mix to fill a planter. Thanks

and happy gardening.

I would browse the Van Dusen Seed Collector's website to start getting ideas. That, and I don't know if Pacific Rim nursery is open to retail sales, but if it is, that's where I'd visit first.
