Lemon Pot with hugelkultur layer under soil.

Lemon Pot with a thick layer of "garden debris" (if there is such a thing!) under the planting soil. The composting organics will eventually turn to soil and add some richness to the existing soil. The process of burying organic matter in piles to breakdown over years is called hugelkultur, a German term and garden art.


For a detailed discussion,

clear graphics, and lots of pics of hugelkultur,
