The raised bed is lined with plastic round the sides - 2 sleepers high, and the soil beneath was heavy clay, not a great help with drainage. It won't be easy, but I feel that my best bet is to remove the plastic?

Raised bed lined with heavy duty plastic,

Home-made compost added each year, Fertiliser before planting.

I have a raised bed made from railway sleepers, 16' x 8'. After three years the soil has become quite heavy and I have noticed the increasing amount of bright silvery particles when digging it over.  The local builder who built the bed for me, kindly lined it with heavy duty plastic, but I am wondering if this has anything to do with my problem..........OAP
