You told us how to make a raised bed but didn't say anything about the soil to put into it. I got an allotment last autumn and cleared some ground and have planted some potatoes and onions. The ground is a mixture of clay and stone, and the whole patch is smothered in mares' tails, as well as lots of other weeds. There are more mares' tails than potatoes and onions in the patch. So: What should I do to fill it? And what can I do to stop the mares' tails growing through?
