Square foot gardening

I dont think MPC is cheaper than top soil. I thought it might be. Ive gone with the three types. Lets hope Ive ordered enough! Im leaving london for a few days so hopefully the neighbours will hold my deliveries for me (yet to arrive) 

I still haven't decided for definite where i'm putting it.

Any Bloggers out there?

Hi all,

I thought I would just see if any of you have gardening blogs? I have had one for a little while. Thought I would share it and see if anyone else has one to share?

Here is my link - feel free to follow / comment

Thank you dovefromabove I will give that a go. I was definitely going to add  farmyard manure. Can i make it slighlty cheaper by mixing some multi compost with the topsoil?

One last question, do i need to line the bed? Or can i leave it as it is just filled up with compost?

Ok, i have just bought one which is 4ft long and 2ft wide, so i can easily get to each square without difficulty. I might consider that primrosecottage. Thanks! 

It will give me 8 squares which im pretty happy with to start out and try. Now to plan what i'm going to grow in each!

Ok thanks guys, maybe I will keep the squash and courgette seperate then? and go for a slightly smaller sized planter. The issue I have is only getting to it from 2 sides so being 4ft square i think is too deep? I was thinking 4ft x 2ft.

Do i need to have a liner? Im assuming carrots, plants roots etc need the depth and might grow deeper than 6"

Hi all,

think i posted in the wrong forum earlier!

so! this is my second year of vegetable gardening. I had a fairly successful first year - so wish to get a 4ft by 4ft or similar small sized raised bed. I will divide it up into equal cells. I was hoping to plant a butternut squash and courgette at the back of it growing up trellis, and then have space for other plants such as carrots, lettuce, plum tomatoes etc. 

The raised bed is not that high around 13cm, is the height important?

Any information or guidance would be much appreciated!

Thanks

Kassie
