My French Garden: Spring in the Limousin

I have been asked by Living France magazine to write a series of four articles throughout the year about my garden as the seasons change. Today I’m very excited as my first article has been published about Spring here at Le Jardin Perdu. I hope that you enjoy reading it.

You can read my later article about Summer in the Limousin here

A bientôt

    It’s always a bit of a gamble knowing when to plant out; should I take a chance and get a head start on my neighbours, despite their annual finger-wagging advice about Saints de Glace and thus run the risk of “I told you so!” or should I wait until later to their nodding approval. If it’s just a matter of a few seeds, I’ll take the risk; the worst that can happen is that I lose a few seeds and a hour of my time. Planting out out choice plants is more difficult and generally I err on the side of caution.

    I do think, however, that the changing climate means, for me at least, that the Saints de Glace is way too late and I can’t remember having a frost at that time of year for at least a decade.

      Our home is at 800m, and we can get quite late frosts. Last year we did, so for the first time I ended up waiting until after Saints de Glace – the greenhouse was bulging!!!
