A practical, down-to-earth guide to gardening in exposed, windy situations in temperate climates.
This concise booklet provides information on growing both ornamental and edible plants and lists wind tolerant trees, shrubs, grasses, perennials and annuals (approximately 5200 words).
Strong, persistent winds can be one of the biggest challenges facing gardeners in temperate regions. Both cool sea winds and hot onshore winds can make life very difficult for many plant species.
Often gardeners don't fully appreciate how much the wind can affect plant growth until they move to an exposed coastal location or a new subdivision with few surrounding trees or shrubs for shelter.
But despite the many challenges, it is possible to establish an attractive and productive garden in a windy situation if suitable species are chosen and appropriate steps are taken to provide some measure of wind protection.
This concise booklet provides practical, down-to-earth advice on establishing and maintaining plants in windy situations and lists both ornamental and edible plants which are suited to exposed, windy situations (approximately 5200 words plus ilustrations).
