trough size

Postby dab » Sun Oct 16, 2016 6:58 am

Hi everyone,
I have 20 odd native violet ground covers in 15cm pots. I want to transfer all of them into one long trough but due to site limitations can only make the trough 10cm high.
Each plant will be 30-40cm apart. I have been told that the plants will prefer more width than depth and that the 10cm should be fine.

What do you guys think, will 10cm depth of soil with ample width be enough for them to take off?

Thanks

I have mine growing in the ground as a ground cover under my patio true the depth has no baring on your question but I have seen them growing quite happily in between cracks on foot paths etc so I don't think the depth would be such a big issue. However when in doubt as your nursery.
