plants for seaside tubs

Rhoda Twombly asked 14 years ago

Hi Gerry! We live on one of the small Clew Bay islands and, as part of a RSS scheme, want to plant some large tubs on top of our sea wall. We don’t want a “strctured” look – more natural & wild – but need plants that are wind (prev. s-se) & salt resistant. Box snails are also a bit of a problem. Any help you could give would be greatly appreciated!Hope your Whit weekend is a great one … ATB – Rhoda

If you go to our Plant finder and select plants that resist strong exposure under Shelter needs, you will find some ideas.

Suitable kinds would include: hydrangea, Rosa rugosa,  sea buckthorn, tree lupin, hebe, escallonia, hypericum, and perennials such as cortaderia, phormium, agapanthus, crocosmia and kniphofia.
