The Coastal Gardener

The nursery is closed during the winter and re-opens in March.
Winter visits by appointment only. See you in the spring!

The Coastal Gardener is a small, specialist plant nursery. We have a passion for the plants we grow. We propagate almost all the plants we have for sale. Many are sown from seed collected at the nursery and from cuttings taken from our stock plants. We are proud to be peat free, we re-use plastic pots and any new pots are biodegradable. We specialise in plants that thrive in maritime conditions, although most of our plants are will thrive in inland gardens too. We have many unusual and hard to find
perennials as well as a small selection of shrubs and trees.
Most people discover at least one or two plants they’ve never seen before.

The nursery is very much a hub for inspiration and advice. We host events and activities throughout the year including free talks, charity events and course. Our raised beds showcase the plants we
sell and we hope you’ll be inspired by our planting combinations. Visit us and see for yourself!

The Coastal Gardener Nursery is at Fakenham Farm on Eddington Road in the village of St Helens on the Isle of Wight, PO33 1XS. Fakenham Farm is also host to Solent View café, Fort View Tyres and a small campsite (
