Which Vegetables to Grow in Rocky Soil and Which to Avoid 

Rocky soil can make vegetable cultivation difficult, but some robust varieties can flourish. Here's a list of rocky soil-friendly and unsuitable veggies.  

Root Vegetables 

Carots: If the dirt is loose enough, they can grow straight roots even in rocky soil.  

Leafy Greens 

It's a tough green that can grow in rocky soil as long as it's not too packed down.  

Herbs 

Thyme is an easy-to-care-for plant that does well in rocky soil. Sage is another herb that can grow in rocky areas once it gets established.  

Perennial Vegetables 

Asparagus: Once it gets established, asparagus can do well in dirt that is rough. Rhubarb is a hardy perennial plant that can grow in dirt that isn't very good.  

Deep-Rooted Vegetables 

For potatoes to grow tubers, the soil needs to be loose and drain well. Rocks in the soil can stop growth.  

Sensitive Vegetables 

Tomatoes: Their roots are very thin and may have trouble getting through rocky soil.  Peppers: Like tomatoes, peppers grow best in dirt that is loose and drains well.
