Hi all i am new to this site and hope i can have an answer to this question, i live in Cyprus and we have recently moved to our new home, i would like to start to design the garden but there is one question, can anyone help. We want to place beach stone (collected from the local beach) in the garden will the salt in the stone effect any of the plants, if they will how is best to arrange them, do they need to be washed.etc etc Thanks.

Welcome to our forum, Crooks! [Linked Image]
You'll find that we're a bunch of friendly people who are eager to help each other with gardening problems (& some of us are looking for help with ours, too!) We're like one big family here, & look forward to getting to know you better!

I posted this answer to your question, over in the plants & flower forum too...
I'm not 100% sure if there is enough salt left on rocks & things gathered from ocean beaches to bother plants, but I think that rinsing them off wouldn't be a bad idea.

Years ago, I hauled a lot of kelp home from the bays in Seattle Washington & buried it in my garden, & my vegetables grew like crazy! I've also crushed up clam shells & put that in my gardens, & have decorated garden beds with driftwood found on ocean beaches... (there was plenty of salt content in that stuff, & at the time I hadn't even thought about it having a bad effect of the plants... or I probably wouldn't have done it!) Duh

So what will you be growing in your garden?
By the way, we LOVE pictures here... I hope that you'll take pictures & share them with us, when you get your garden all fixed up with the beach stone!

I hope to see you again soon... & often! [Linked Image]
