We bought our old house in 33540 near Sauveterre-de-Guyenne in May 2015. We have replaced the house & barn roof & are now turning our attention to the garden.
We have 2500m & because the trees had been neglected for years we paid a good tree surgeon to do some felling & pruning. A good job because in the large pine, now felled, there were those processional caterpillar nests & we have a 'nosy' miniature schnauzer.
The garden is grassy & slightly sloping & now full of light.
I have several questions:
I guess soil preparation would be similar to UK-rotovate & add lots of manure-horse or cow muck? Can anyone recommend a good book for gardening in France-particularly what to do when? Do you have recommendations for sourcing seeds, plants, trees, rotavator etc.?
