Coastal gardens are characterised by strong winds, fast-draining soils and salty air presenting a challenge for gardeners, but our selection of coastal plants can handle these tricky conditions. Seaside gardens can be created anywhere; you can create your own coastal garden by adding coastal plants, gravel, a splash of colour, and some reclaimed sea-washed artefacts.
Seaside plants tend to have waxy leaves or needle-type foliage that can cope with poor soils, salty sea air and windy conditions. They are lovely to explore, photograph and enjoy all year round.
