What can you grow in rocky soil?
If you are looking for decorative plants, any number of "alpine" plants grow well in rocky soil. I grow edelweiss, echinacea, bee balm, several different mints, and hens & chicks (house leeks) in my area in less than perfect soil. And my favourite plant is nasturtium. these little guys thrive on neglect, and grow best in poor soil. They look good and you can eat the flowers and the leaves in salads, they have a crisp peppery taste and add fun to your plate. If you are looking for herbs, the above mentioned echinacea, bee balm, mints and nasturiums as well as mellisa (lemon balm) hyssop, french tarragon, savory, thyme, oregano, and chives thive in my area as well. Check in your local nursery for what is available in your area as plants tend to grow best in their own zones. You need to check the packaging of the plants or seeds for zone information and check with your local nursery for the zone you live in. I
