This inspirational and practical book explains how to design, plan, and plant your garden by the sea, making the most of the coastal microclimate. An exposed situation, extremes of weather, soil type, and salty air can be difficult to deal with. Learn how to design and choose the right plants that will thrive, whether it is for a windswept, sheltered, container, productive, or tropical or exotic-looking garden.
