As soon as we saw the house I knew this was where a vegetable garden could go!
- The kitchen door is at this end of the house – and I would want the garden to be close to the kitchen
- The land is fairly level (I do want to have a formal, raised bed French style potager!)
- South-East facing, so pretty good for maximising sun
- The pigsty (the low building in this photo) makes a great feature which I think is important in a potager. Maybe I can espalier an apple here?All that is here at the moment are a few ancient plums ( I think!) and loads and loads of bramble…..
