Carmarthenshire, United Kingdom
I want to turn a 2 acre field, formerly used as pastureland and more recently a paddock into a mini forest garden with both edible and ornamental plants. I want to plant trees, shrubs, flowers and vegetables. The soil is not great but is varied, it's got a boggy area and dry areas, it's not at all level, has interesting ups and downs, ideal for a wide range of plants and to attract lots of birds and wild life. How do I get started? Should I do some soil improvement first?
