The Grand Potager’s raised mounds

At the Grand Potager on the Domain of Fontenille, we tried out a raised mound technique, connected by a teepee giving inclined support to climbing beans and marrows, thanks to a weaving which was handmade with ropes.

This green cover will offer some shadow to the gardener, and to other plants situated at the inside edge of the mound. The central alley was dug, the recovered earth being used to raise the bins. Thus, the height of the tray facilitates its maintenance.
