Talkback: Digging beds and borders

Posted: 18/11/2014 at 09:22

Hello GWRS.

If you have already put the manure on the beds then it will be fine. 

The worms and good bacteria will break it down over winter and you will probably find that there is no need to dig it in.

Fresh manure (when mixed with straw) and piled up, usually takes about 6 months to age depending on conditions.You'll know when it's done by its texture.

Hi BitterKnitter.

Congratulations on your new friends. Your worms are hermaphrodites so not sure about calling them all Freds.

Have you see my thread. I am sure it will be a big help to you.

Edd with your calculations you have given a raised bed width of 16 ft. No raised bed should be wider than 4 ft or you will have to climb on it to cultivate! The whole point of a raised bed is you never compact it by walking on it.

Hi Welshonion. 

I was just going off the dimensions given by DrGreenThumb31 and a top soil calculator. 

"Im working with 16 ft by 16ft raise bed"

"@Welshonion thank you very much! So lets go 18 inches then"


I should have perhaps used the word settle instead of compact.

I do agree with the 4ft wide beds though. I presume that he is trying to get the largest area possible with it being on concrete.
