Yes, you can garden in areas with salty soil: you just have to choose the right plants! Source: www.wearefound.com.

There are various reasons you, as a gardener, might have to deal with salty soil, that is, soil rich in sodium (salt is sodium chloride, NaCl). Maybe you garden near a body of salt water, like an ocean, and salt spray is regularly deposited on the soil. Or if you live in a dry climate, salt just naturally tends to build up over eons, leaving the soil permanently salty. In rainier climates, those with over 20 inches (50 cm) of precipitation per year, salt tends to be leached out of the soil, but can still be found in excess in spots near roadways, driveways and sidewalks that are treated with de-icing salt in winter.

You’ve been told that that, when life gives you lemons, make lemonade. Well, when life gives you salty soil, plant salt-resistant plants! It’s as simple as that.

The following plants are adapted, to various degrees, to salty soils. Some will also tolerate salt spray.

Highly salt tolerant — ☆☆☆

Moderately salt tolerant — ☆☆

Slightly salt tolerant—☆
