planting where path used to be

Hi,

You would have to remove as much of the material as possible that was used to bed your slabs on and any hardcore as well. The ground will be very compacted and will have to be dug over thoroughly adding compost as you  go.

Perhaps you could build a raised bed on the area after, with some good top soil and compost, to give the plants better growing conditions.

Fertilizers

The numbers are the (NPK) Percentages and should be marked on the fertilizer packets. So you require a fertilizer 10% Nitrogen - 40% Phosphorus - 10% Potassium

Composter

We also had rats in our compost bin, so we put down crazy paving straight onto the soil as a base for the compost bin. Worms and insects can still get through the small gaps between the paving to do their thing. Not had any rats since.
