Plants for sandy soil


Jo-Anna Plant Suitability:  Plants for sandy soil...

I often get asked what plants are suitable for different soil types.  Most recently a gentleman wanting to create a cottage garden asked the suitability of plants for sandy soil.  Armed with the Royal Horticultural Society's many books, I created a list and garden design for him.

Cottage Garden Plants do grow in sandy soil...

Surprisingly there are many typical cottage garden plants you can use for this type of soil, many of which I grow in my own garden.  Close to the coast and Sandringham where the famous and stunning acid loving Rhododendrons grow, I can bare testimony that these plants for sandy soil, will grow happily.
