Seaside Hedging Plants – Gardening and choosing the right plants should always be a fun and exciting challenge but when it comes to creating the perfect garden in a coastal situation, where the conditions can be too harsh for many plants with the regular strong salt laden onshore winds, it may seem particularly challenging. Surprisingly there are a great number of plants that will thrive in this habitat, especially for those plants that dislike the colder inland positions and appreciate the milder climate near the sea with the reduced chance of frosty conditions.
There are effective ways to create a more favourable environment to help shrubs, seaside hedging plants and ground cover plants establish themselves including creating a sunken area for them to sit. Other ways include putting up wind filtering screens of windbreak netting or woven willow or hazel hurdles whilst a hedge, that will do this job itself once fully grown, is getting its roots down.
Whether your garden is situated right on the coast or a little further inland, we have a fabulous hedge selection of all sizes - tried and tested to cope with the blustery salt laden winds - and the many long days of glorious sunshine too!
