to do a lot with a small plot of land. They use a technique called French Intensive gardening Plants are very close together Very rich, loose soil is used so plants dont need to spread far to get nutrients
How to plant a garden using French Intensive Gardening 1. Layout the size/shape of your garden (The diagram garden is 4x8) 2. Dig square 1 about a foot and a half deep, placing the dirt in square D 3. Fill square 1 with about 1-4 inches of manure, Turn the manure into the subsoil. Repeat for other squares.
