Loking for help/advice/competition entrants to create a yesteryear garden/orchard covering 4 acres of land in the Dordogne. All input and feedback appreciated. http://www.manoirdegurson.co.uk/#!blogger-feed/c1y40 I admit to little gardening knowledge but I do love a good garden and believe in conservation. Thanks

Thanks for that Fidgetbones. Plenty to get my teeth into. I am more convinced than ever it is a worthwhile project and am excited at the prospect.
