Hey guys n' gals, I'm new to the forums & wondering if anyone in a similar climate has had success with Trichos this close to the ocean? I've just recently moved down the South Coast, NSW and am interested in purchasing some cuttings for the garden. I'm just wondering how well Trichs will survive and tolerate the harsh ocean winds + salt spray? We literally have to wash the house windows twice a week here. The car's getting rooted and my computer is rusting rapidly. Wouldn't trade it for the world though - this place is healing beyond belief. The spot I'd eventually want them in the ground is probably less than 60m from open ocean with little protection from a east, south/easterly winds. Soil is average too, high amounts of sticky orange red clay in the Shoalhaven & Illawarra. I should be able to improve the soil with time though. I'd be leaving them in their pots sitting on these gold pebbles for a year or so to acclimatize until planting them in the ground in the same spot. Will I have any luck here do you guys think, or should I be putting them in the front yard (road side) where its more protected from the ocean/wind, but less sunny?
