Where can I get topsoil?

I am in the Dun Le Palestel or Aigurande area, and need some topsoil. Any ideas.

My feeling is that you'll be lucky to find topsoil, although of course I could be completely wrong. One thing I can suggest is that you look-up anything that looks as though it's to do gardening etc in the yellow pages.
You might find that you end up having to improve your existing soil.

I am not sure what 'top soil' is in french. I tried 'terre vegetale' in Pages jaunes and got some hits. Maybe a place to start? Good luck

A quick search shows came up with bigbag-direct who appear to be selling top soil (Terre Végétale) from about €45 for a cubic meter. I'm not sure if they will deliver to La Creuse but it gives you an example price.

There are a bunch of results on google.fr (castorama sell 25 kg bags for example)

You could try:
A local terassement or paysagist.
Ask the plant sellers at the market- they are Denormandie round here
Ask a large garden centre like Jardiland
Ask you local mayor
Ask a local farmer, our neighbour is planning to build two new cow barns on grazing land, peresumably he will be scraping the topsoil back first - actually, I might ask him myself!
Bonne chance and let us know how you get on!
