    Hello from darn south. Very south
    We also have cold winters altho only usually as low as -10C/-14C usually, but the dry hot baking summers. Very few plants that can cope with both in the same year! But I'm working on finding them.

    We're using no dig gardening as we have thin topsoil and shale underneath, and it's working well with the vege's. Trying with fruit trees now and branching out so to speak.

    One bit of old folklore wisdom says to plant tomatoes when the soil is warm enough to sit on with bare buttocks. In surburban areas, use the back of your wrist. Jackie French

    Hello, and welcome to the Madhouse! Looks like you've met most of the other 'foreigners' I'm in good old Essex, which is also a foreign land to many!
