What should you plant in chalky soil?
Chalky soils offer a challenge to the budding gardener – but there is no need to fear, all you need to do is opt for plants which thrive in alkaline conditions.
The most important first step when planting with chalky soil is to establish how deep your topsoil is.
Some plants may tolerate alkaline soil conditions on shallow soils over chalk, but others will not.
Topsoil may need to be brought in to make planting possible in some cases.
