Definition of french intensive gardening

Categorized under "General"

Definition as written by Terry:

During the mid-19th century, French market growers (maraîchères) used a variety of innovative techniques to dramatically extend their growing season and to get more production from their gardens (often no more than one acre in size.) Many books were written, and the techniques were quickly disseminated throughout Europe and England.

Unfortunately, many of the techniques and varieties in cultivation gave way to new planting systems and ideas.

Today there is still an interest (and need) for intensive gardening, especially for those whose space is limited.
