Good afternoon everyone. Someone mentioned pinching out the Cosmos? At what height do you do it? Mine are about 3", /8cm.

Raised beds depth

Posted: 07/05/2013 at 14:58

My raised bed is made from treated timber gravel boards from a firm that sells fencing etc. I made it myself using 2x2" in the corners. Since you are putting it on concrete you could make the bed double height. Alternatively, get someone with a jackhammer to dig up the concrete in that area. Good luck with it

Swiss Sue, I had not realised that you have reported kitchen sales people, so reported a couple of them again. I guess if a firm is really desparate, as many are now, they will try anything to make a sale.

Am so enjoying the greenhouse that I bought last year; I'm out there in my jim-jams every morning moving stuff out to harden off and it's a great place to sit in the early evening with a glass of wine.

No 'for sale' area here, I suspect it would attract too many companies trying to sell stuff.

Raised beds depth

Posted: 06/05/2013 at 12:33

My raised beds are not very deep but they are on top of earth, albeit clay, which I loosened up a bit by digging and adding some compost before using a mix of compost and topsoil on top. Each year the contents of the compost bins get emptied on to the beds, so the good growing medium is getting deeper. Right from the start I could grow root veg like beetroot, but I always grow potatoes in potato bags for the depth.

Name that plant!!
