starting an alpine garden/ rock garden
i am living in north carolina and have a very sunny dry area in the corner of my yard. i am wanting to start an alpine garden with some other kinds of succulents. i have been looking at the web for help-- but i seem to be stuck. can i mix succulents and alpine flowers-- is it to hot here for alpine breeds. how should i start?? any advice or tips are helpful. i am very familiar with succulents and how to grow/care for them. it is more the 'alpines' and rock gardening that i am wondering about.
