A great deal of effort, cost and ultimate disappointment awaits those who do not properly research plants which will tolerate extremes of wind and salt sprays. One of Burncoose's specialities is in selecting plants which will tolerate coastal conditions.
We can readily offer fuller plant lists depending on exactly how close your garden is to the shoreline or how exposed it is to westerly gales in hilly or mountainous locations. Near the coast in hot, dry and sandy soil conditions some more tender plants will survive and prosper but, at higher colder altitudes, the choices can be more limited.
If in doubt select your own plant list and ask us to comment on its suitability preferably with an emailed picture or two of your garden.
