Coastal Hedge Plants for Sale

Coastal Hedging and Screening Plants

Coastal hedge plants have the combined qualities of being good in the wind, tolerating salt, and growing in sandy, poor soils. The plants on this list all do just that. Some prefer warmer areas, some have nice flowers, some have good foliage, but they are all good seaside "doers" and are excellent for proving low windbreaks, cover for wildlife, and low maintenance, gale-proof privacy hedges.

Take a look at our full list of hedge plants here.

All our seaside hedge plants are covered by our no-quibble Guarantee, which means you can order with complete confidence. Free delivery on orders over £60. Best advice & friendly support throughout.
