Gardening near the seas has its special problems but also its special delights. For the gardenere, nothing can match relaxing among beautiful plants perfectly suited to their environment, the waves sparkling in the the sun in the background. Jacqueline Sparrow believes that the problems of spray and wind are more than compensated for by the pleasures of living and gardening near the sea. Her book is crammed full of information about how to grow a beautiful garden within a kilometre of the sea: Improving the soil; choosing the right plants; providing shelter from the wind; hardy trees and shrubs; climbers, succulents, perrenials, bulbs and annuals; palms and cycads – special seaside plants. The majority of the colour photographs in the book are by well-known gardening photographer Gil Hanly.
