Here's what I hope someone can help me with. I am more and more thinking of a garden (both hobby and later on a small business) with HARDY succulents (sempervivums, sedums and the like) and alpines that go well with these. My question is... does it matter the position of the land (I mean facing south, north, etc) ? I found a nice piece of land on a little hill outside my parents' village. So it's on a little slope (which I think it's good... in spring it rains quite a bit and the fields sometimes get pond-ed In summer on the other hand, we don't get enough rains... and occasional watering is necessary. But for now, I only want to know if position of the garden matters at all.
