Hi TDM if your in the rear garden you could simply build raised beds,at our allotment we have only 12" of soil so we all raise with top soil and manure then mulch as much as we can,if looks arnt important scaffold boards cost about ??4 each and work perfectly,if you want nicer looking ones upmarket the timber

Peas

Hi green ,,,,, old allotmenteers all agree dip or wipe the peas in paraffin before planting no mice probs ,it doesn't harm the pea in any way as all the growth is from the inside of the pea and new, i even remember my granddad doing it as he had lots of mice on his allotments (3)
Goodluck
