Spring flowering bulbs, crocus, daffs etc. If you have access to English tele, Friday night seems to be gardening night so see what they're advising ( they even give weather forecasts, irrelevant to us in the main but shows they're seasonal )

You can buy bulbs in practically any supermarket. As a gardening ' virgin ' you might want to try planting some in pots and compare the results with the ones planted directly into the ground. Pots give you a bit more control during tough weather and you can always bring them indoors when they flower.

Thanks for all the advice and I've now got lots of bulbs planted, but in the process I learned a valuable lesson with regard to using Pages Jaunes on-line.As you all probably know there is the English language option, which I duly selected and put in 'Garden Services'. I got a few numbers and spoke to a very nice man who went off to find an English speaker. They seemed rather surprised at my call and didn't seem to understand why I was ringing. I thought it might be my inadequate French or their English until it finally dawned on me that I was speaking to the French Territorial Army! Work it out, ' services' ' garden' ( terrain ). Beware of dodgy translations!
