I use raised beds and spread compost on between Oct and Jan each year. This year I used a recently acquired second-hand electric rotovator to tickle the compost in and will certainly use in the spring when seed sowing to help give a good tilth.

My question is: there is advice now that one should be digging 12" trenches and putting in old newspapers, compost etc for runner beans, but how does this tie in with the general advice that one shouldn't dig raised beds?
