Coastal Perennial Plants

tonyandjuliephillips says:

Can anyone advise me of planting options for my coastal home on the North Coast of Cornwall. We have lots of pots which I would like to fill, ideally with perennials, shrubs etc. The weather is relatively mild but can be windy.

    The RHS offers some advice on their site - https://www.rhs.org.uk/advice/profile?pid=472

    If you need salt tolerant plants then T&M have a useful ist too - http://www.thompson-morgan.com/plants-for-coastal-gardens 

    Plants in pots will need sheltering from prevailing winds as they'll dry out very quickly.   My garden isn't coastal but is exposed and the pots I have out in the windier bits need far more watering than the others.
