The Coastal Gardener

Welcome to The Coastal Gardener, a small specialist plant nursery and garden design practice.  

The nursery is at Fakenham Farm Eddington Road, St Helens on the Isle of Wight, PO35 5TN. 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 courses. 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 nursery is open from 10am until 4pm, Thursday to Saturday, from mid-March to mid-October.


 We specialise in plants that thrive in maritime conditions, although most of our plants 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.

We propagate many of the plants we have for sale. We sow seed collected at the nursery and take cuttings from from our stock plants - truly Isle of Wight born and bread! We take our environmental impact seriously and use peat free compost, organic feed and we re-use plastic pots. We can supply some of our plants bare-rooted or in biodegradable pots. We also sell peat free compost by the litre in reusable bags. Perlite and vermiculite are also available by the litre. Biodegradable weed suppressing membrane and rubber tree ties also stocked.


We design and create gardens of all sizes, public and private, inland and coastal.

Pop into the nursery, or contact Gerry Price to discuss your garden project.


We welcome group visits to the nursery. Please contact Gerry, or call 07977 550050.


Fakenham Farm is also host to Fort View Tyres, Kevars Cafe and

a small campsite (www.fakenhamfarmcampsite.co.uk)
