Seaside Gardening Tips
By Seaside Garden Centre, Co. Kerry, Ireland

Gardening tips and hands-on advice for gardeners in coastal areas.

Everybody living in a coastal area knows that gardening near the sea is different!

Seaside gardening certainly has its challenges but you just can't beat the unique and beautiful setting a coastal landscape gives to a seaside garden.

On top of that, the mild coastal climate allows you to cultivate exotic looking plants from around the world that you could not grow in colder inland areas.

First of all, the plants you choose for your garden have to be able to cope with the rough coastal climate.

Good seaside plants have to cope with

  • wind
  • salt spray and
  • sand.

A lot of gardeners have learned the hard way that the right choice of plants is critical.

As a garden center owner for over 12 years I have virtually seen all the mistakes that people can make. At Seaside Garden Centre we specialize in seaside plants and gardens.
