Your best bet is to go with something native that is highly adapted to those specific conditions. I would suggest contacting a nearby nursery that specializes in native plants, or consulting with your closest university horticultural department or county extension agency. They will be able to tell you which types of native trees, shrubs and plants will grow best. They may also know what non-native plants have worked for other gardeners in your area or offer contact information for local gardening clubs where you can exchange ideas.

The only thing I have found for sure is bulbs. I have dafodills and irises growing on mine. Also. herbs seem to be doing well. But, for sure I go with bulbs. Chert is not like any kind of soil I've ever seen. After moving here to Tn and being used to Maine's soil it is quite a change.
