We live right on the coast in a very exposed spot. It is very beautiful but I am struggling a bit with the produce gardening. All I seem to be able to grow is miner's lettuce & cabbage. We lost all our pears to a 100 mph gale just before they got ripe last year. The other fruit trees are still babies. On the plus side, we have no slugs or snails & the soil is good. I have planted a shelter belt of native trees, I have acquired a glass house - still waiting for dh's friend to do the glass for it. I probably just have to wait for all my shelter trees & shrubs to grow up. Does anyone garden coastally ? Any tips & pointers ?
