At first it may seem that Coastal gardens are particularly challenging when it comes to choosing trees, shrubs, hedging plants and ground cover with the constant salt laden onshore winds. In fact there are a great number of plants that will thrive in these conditions and in particular many that dislike cold inland positions and appreciate the milder conditions near the sea.

Below is a long list of plants in all shapes and sizes, all well suited to maritime situations. Some are very common seaside plants like Escallonia and Griselinia, others are a little less common but deserve to be more commonly planted, our particular favourite is the Daisy Bush, Olearia macrodonta with its beautiful silvery foliage that looks great all year against the blue sea and sky backdrop!
