What to sow
I am going to be spending 6 months in Normandy with (non-gardening) friends and am determined to bring some colour to their garden in the time I have there (and hopefully leave a legacy that they could easily carry on!). I will be going May-October, there is about 1/2 acre and the soil is clay, the climate is similar to S/W England. The price of plants over there is high, so my starting point is annual seeds, and some biannuals/perennials. I would be grateful for any advice.
