Some plants are particularly suited to growing in sandy soils. Some plants may tolerate dry conditions, whilst other may need some watering over summer.
The addition of well-rotted compost or well-aged animal manure improves the moisture-holding qualities of the sand. This will encourage worms and continue to break-down and improve the soil, and also help prevent the soil from drying out. Only aged manures should be used.
Using organic mulches on the surface, or soil wetter, will help retain moisture as the surface of sandy soils tends to dry out and repel water rather than soaking it in.
The following Flora for Fauna plants will grow especially well in sandy soils and coastal environments. You should also ask your local Flora for Fauna Nursery for advice.
