veg plot edging

Posted: 29/08/2013 at 12:03

i have a veggie plot  divided into 4 sections. i have paths all around the plots. In order for the soil to stay in place i have used various wooden products.

I need advice on what material i can use to provide a raised edge ( say 3 to 6 inches high) all around the plot. i have tried log roll but that just rots after a while.  Is there any type of steel/plastic product that anybody is using that fits the bill.

i am lucky enough to have at least one badger coming in to my garden after dusk.

However it enjoys sumo wrestling with my onions before demolishing my carrots.

can anyone advise me how to persuade them to leave my veg plot alone?

i did read in the latest GW magazine about curry powder may help.

i have been propergating  strawberry runners for many years now. the last 2 years have produced smaller and smaller amounts of produce.

 the original  strawberry plants were first grown over 40 years ago? Should i now consider planting more modern strawberry plants.?
