I have just built a new raised bed measuring 100cm x 100cm x 31cm
That works out at a soil volume of approx 310 litres.
Now, I have to fill it. My wife plans to grow a wide selection of veg, salad and flowers. All just for experimenst and for fun.
I have have been advised to fill it with (bagged) top soil and (bagged) organic farmyard manure at an approx 50/50 mix. Both from Westland I believe.
Bearing in mind that this is the first time we have used a raised bed, have only one or two garden centres within reach and niether of them are terribly specialised .... is the suggested mix okay or is there a better way of doing it?
Any advise welcome.
