Hi all i am very excited to be gettting 2 large troughs this weekend to plant veg in. I haven't grown veg since ill health meant I had to give up my allotment 5 years ago. A king retired neighbour is making them out of old pallets the troughs are the type with legs (very expensive in the magazine) about 1-2 metres wide and 1-11/2 metres across and an inverted triangular prism shape. my question for anyone is what soil do i need i was thinking i'd need some topsoil mixed with compost. I planted seeds in anticipation beetroot, radish, mangetout, salad & spring cabbage just in pots.
